This activity will help to improve attention, especially visual attention. Children with autism often like to line up things and arrange them. However, this activity requires them to follow your guidelines for lining up.
What you need: Paper, Marker, beans or large seeds
On a thick piece of paper, draw a line. Give your child a bowl of beans, or large seeds. Ask them to place them one after the other on the line.
Once your child is able to do this easily, you can make the task a little more difficult with a circle, or any other shape.
This activity helps your child to track visually and work from one end to another- a skill that is very important for writing and reading.
