Aspergers friendly group games, your ideas needed!

Our Spectrum Club, a youth group for young people with Aspergers is growing in numbers and our younger group ( aged 10-15) are stuggling with the concept of group games. One game of Pictionary later and we were left puzzled and mentally exhausted through trying to make a success of the game. We are persistent though and are determined to try a new game every session with the aim of improving their social skills within group settings.

So here is where I need your help, do you have any suggestions of group games we can try with our young people? If not, please send any spare patience, motivation and enthusiasm as we might just need it 😉

I found some motivational text that I hope to remember if it all goes wrong this week, just incase!

    My 20-something son loves Bananagrams. It is a group game similar to scrabble but easier to play.

  2. Love the idea of this game – we will have to invest! Thanks Lynn 🙂

    I have used the game Scruples on a number of ocassions – it enables young people to explore moral dilemmas and discuss reasons for actions and consequences of specific actions. You can also make your own game up using more relevant scenarios to suit the groups individual needs.

  5. Thanks for the reply, haven’t heard of Scruples so I will look into it. I like the idea of creating a bespoke game for the group. Thank you 🙂
