Why has this game been chosen to be autism friendly?
Many Children on the Autism Spectrum have exceptional long-term memory, especially when it comes to the child’s particular “Special interest”. This could be anything from names, dates, specific periods of time, facts about space, or like little man, “Bus numbers and destinations” However working memory (which is more commonly known as our short-term memory) can often be a weakness, which is why many children on the autism spectrum struggle to follow simple sets of instructions, especially if it involves doing things in sequence. Yes, its easy to become annoyed with a child when they seem to lack the basic skills required to follow basic sets of instructions, more so if the child is yet to gain a diagnosis.
