Expressive communication games

In the Communications course, a few games and activities have been added to the Expressive Communications topic.

The Communications course is useful for children with Special needs. Games and activities make learning fun.

The following games have been added to the Expressive Communication topic:

  1. Similar things

In this game, the child has to look at the pictures and find something similar.

The child can touch or hover over the sentence to hear the sentence. Same with the options provided. A short video of the game is available at the link below ( you can subscribe to the YouTube channel and of course, this blog for regular updates).

Short demo of the Expressive Communication game

2.Word finding

In this game, the student has to drag one of the words to fill the blank.

3. Pictorial story

This game is based on some famous tales. The story has been represented with pictures. The student has to look at the pictures,read the question and then drag the correct picture to answer the question.

As with all the games, the software reads out the words on touching or hovering over the sentence.

While all children will enjoy these games and activities, children with Autism or ASD will benefit from these games. Children with Special needs can also learn reading while playing these games. The audio helps them read the words. If the child has learnt reading or is almost there, the audio can be switched off.

All games work on mobile devices ( iPad,iPhone, Android tabs and phones) as well as on laptop or pc.

Please provide your comments/ thoughts about these games.

Spot the planets

Today we added some simple activities/games for children with Special needs to help them understand the Solar system.

This topic is part of the NIOS as well as other curricula such as C.B.S.E.

As with other games and activities these are related to a competency,which in turn can be associated to the student’s learning plan.

These are the games/activities added:

1. Spot it game: Solar system

In this game the student has to touch ( on iPad, Other Tablet devices and any other device supporting touch ) or click ( using mouse ) the planet to answer the question.

The game is short and there is no time limit. It supports unlimited attempts. If the child has difficulty reading, the child can listen to the question. The question is repeated if the child touches or hovers over the text.

If the child touches the wrong planet, the software shows the correct answer with a short explanation.

2. Fill in the blanks

This is simple activity where the child has to drag the right answer to fill in the blanks.

Three choices are provided. Once again the game is short, has no time limit and allows unlimited attempts.

This topic about the Solar system is currently added to the Environmental Science course series.
