This game is great for children with autism , learning difficulties or speech delay. It is best used as a daily calendar where the child works with an adult to put the correct pieces for that day onto the board.
This listing is for a PDF copy of this weather and wear calendar. You will also need to download the FREE piece pages document to go with this (use these pages to velcro your calendar pieces onto when not in use). This document can be downloaded here:
This not only helps the child to learn difficult concepts such as dates and weather, but also helps to develop a routine for dressing. It encourages social interaction and improves motor skills as the child is required to move small pieces around appropriately.
Ideally, the calendar board and all pieces would be laminated before cutting out. I also put velcro onto the pieces and keep them in a folder with velcroed pages (you will also receive piece pages to print and form this sort of folder). I also put velcro onto the calendar board and mount onto the wall a the child's height.
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.
