Benefits of Playing Games
While there will be a lot of fun to be had playing games, your child’s development will benefit as well. For instance, playing board games can enhance a child’s math, reading, knowledge, fine motor, and cognitive skills. Game playing can also greatly enhance a child’s social skills as well, including taking turns, engaging in appropriate behavior, and dealing with winning and losing. Children also learn patience, how to follow rules, and play fair while playing games. And there will even be an opportunity for siblings who are not on the spectrum to socialize and network with their peers.
