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 shapes with the right shape on the board and stick them on (Good idea to keep repeating the name of the shapes with child so they get used the words).
Ideally, the board and shapes cards would be laminated before cutting out. I also put velcro onto the shapes 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.
