Autism is a superpower. Resources for learning more about autism with your children

For Autism Awareness week 2021, we thought we would put together some resources for all children and families to learn about autism.

The list is full of resources pulled from amazing creators many of which have autism themselves. There are videos to learn more as well as activities for children with autism to understand how their brain works. There can be a lot of misunderstanding around autism... there is no 'normal' way for someone's brain to be wired. There are just different ways!

Last year, we sent samples of our games to an amazing girl called Maryam (who happens to have autism) and we are happy to report back that she loved them. It is important to us at OjO to make sure our games are enjoyable for all!

Try a few of the resources and comment below if you learnt something new or have something to add!
