Teach Numbers Using Mario
Trying to teach kids when they are not paying attention is the number one issue I see with toddlers on the autism spectrum. I see it in the classroom environment, therapy clinics, and in the home. This is a serious issue, and in most environments parents don't have any control over what's going on. At home, it's a different story. You can overcome attention issues by playing with your kid. Use the kid's inherent motivations and likes to get them engaged in activities where you can target specific skills and language. If your kid loves Mario, then use this puzzle to play with your kid. This is a great activity to model and expose kids to basic number sense skills.
