I can actually relate to this topic because I myself am living in a house with a kid that has autism. In fact my nephew has autism. So, I can personally tell you what are the toys that I have observed and seen that has helped him improves or developed his mental and motor skills. One of the major problems of autistic children is their focus. They are having hard time focusing on one thing. But we should also understand that autism has different level when it comes to severity. The level of the severity of my nephew’s autism is just mild. I am so glad that it’s not that worse. The only way that you can totally understand the behavior of children with autism is to understand the world of autism. You need to study everything about autism. Because if you do not study autism, there is no way that you will be able to cope or understand the condition of children with autism. Don’t worry because I myself and my family especially my sister the mother of my nephew has invested a time to study autism so we will be able to understand the behavior and would know how to deal with him.
Autistic children need special attention because they also have special condition. And to help them cope with their condition, there are some treatment methods that should be done to help them improve and make them functional. Like for example the toys to help autistic kids develop their mental and motor skills. We are sending my nephew to a school for special children and what we have observed is they are actually using toys as treatment method and also to teach the children. The most common toys to help autistic kids develop their mental and motor skills are puzzles. There are different types of puzzles from colors, to shapes, and to other figures. You might be wondering why toys?
Autistic children love to play. This is the only thing that can make them focus. So, experts have come up with an idea to use toys as teaching materials for special children. And trust me, those simple toys have actually helped my nephew improve and develop their mental and motor skills. Before my nephew is so hyper, can’t focus, can’t recognize persons, and easily irritated. But because of the help of experts in his school, he have changed so much like we can now communicate to him, he is not that hyper anymore, and he already know how to speak and communicate.
