Parenting a Literal Child
It's not just a matter of symantics - for some kids, everything is literal. In parenting several kids with FAS/FAE, I've found that you have to be very careful with your instructions - because they'll be followed!
Occupational Therapy: Cut Up Fruits and Vegetables
A great toy for developing good fine motor skills in kids with mild special needs and visual impairments. Try slicing up a nice salad and then see if your child can match up the pieces again! Can your child hold the food with one hand and cut it up using the knife with the other? Many good creative games can be played with these. To add to the fun, add old pots, Tupperware, and kitchen tools.
