This game is great for children with autism , learning difficulties or speech delay. It can be used to help teach the letters of alphabet through pictures. These sorts of games can also improve fine motor skills as the child is required to accurately place the piece in the correct place on the board.
The idea of the game is simple... just match the object cards with the correct letter that they begin with and stick them on (Adult should repeat letter and object name e.g., "A for Apple"). The game has been designed to be colorful and engaging. All of the object cards have photographic rather than clip-art style images, as I have found from experience that autistic children respond better to photographs.
Ideally, the board and object cards would be laminated before cutting out. I also put velcro onto the cards and board to allow easier playing and storage of the game. You could always just print this on paper though and replace it whenever necessary (that's the great thing about buying the digital PDF version of these games).
All of my items are learning aids that I have created myself based on autistic children being visual learners. Most children learn and practice skills through play, but a child with autism will need practice and prompting to do so. All of the games that I design are meant for the child to use with the help of an adult. There are lots of wonderful resources to help children develop but children with autism can find the colors and quantity of objects too overwhelming and many do not know what to do with it all, for this reason the games are kept simple and information is presented clearly and visually.
