This game is great for children with autism , learning difficulties or speech delay. Teaches colors with photos rather than clip-art as I have found that children with autism respond much better to photographic images.
I have designed this game myself as I work with autistic children and find that visual aids such as this one really help them to learn. The idea of the game is simple... just put the right color teddy in the right color box, then when the child is well practiced with the teddies you can move on to the colored objects. I included colored objects as I think it is good for children to see the colors in context when they are learning (the objects are those that they are likely to come across (e.g., clothes, food, animals, etc). The PDF file includes the the main colors board and two extra boards for keeping your colored pieces on (should you choose to velcro them). There are 12 teddies (2 of each color) and 12 objects (2 of each color). Ideally, the colors board and all pieces would be laminated before cutting out and attaching velcro (as pictured).

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.
