Go Go Games: A trio of matching adventures for kids with autism
Alexis Hiniker, Joy Wong Daniels, Heidi Williamson
Go Go Games supports children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in learning to quickly notice the intersections of multiple features of the objects in the world around them – a skill that is essential to learning and comes naturally to most children – but is known to be a common difficulty for those with ASD. Go Go Games provides the opportunity to build this critical ability while maneuvering trucks, trains, and spaceships through a trio of fantasy adventures. We hope to provide a foundation in a skill that has broad implications for improved life-long learning, while capturing the imaginations of the students with ASD that have inspired us all year long.
