Autism and a Little Board Game Distraction

Here is your autism story for the week:

“No games.”

“I want iPad.”

Well iPad time was over. Sometimes as a mom you have to click into “distractor-mode” when your kiddos with autism are demanding electronics.

The other day we busted out some old games that Nathan used to play–and even though he was hesitant at first he eventually came around and had a great time. These are some of his favorite games and I highly recommend them for even non-verbal children with autism (although I didn’t realize these games were discontinued and now so expensive):

My sweet Noelle will be a great teacher/mother someday. It was endearing to watch her encourage her big brother along. #AutismLife #BoardGames #SiblingLove
