Online Activities

I’m definitely a huge advocate of creative play and decreasing the amount of multimedia instruction/exposure, but sometimes, the computer can be a great teaching tool, too. Here are some of my favorite links for parents/therapists/educators that want to use the computer more with your children:

Fisher-Price online games: This site has online games for infants, toddlers, and young children. It’s a great site for teaching basic computer skills and educational skills (anything from cause/effect to colors, shapes, opposites, etc.).

Owlie Boo: This site has online games to help develop more basic computer skills including: key clicking, mouse movement, and click and drag. This site works well with a touchscreen, too.

Starfall: This is a favorite of many educators that I work with. It has all sorts of basic learning videos and interactive sites for young children to enjoy, especially for letter recognition and reading development.

Here’s a great list of a number of additional sites by Teaching Learners with Multiple Special needs.

Happy playing!
