It seems that my son is spending more and more time on the computer these days. While Shannon and I, try to carefully monitor every website that Jacob visits. He loves the IBM website for some reason and he loves learning about the weather. So with the help of Chedoke McMaster, my wife and I have a list of great websites that are both educational and fun. There's sites for reading stories, playing word games or improving math skills. Jacob hasn't tried all of the websites on our list, but here are a few that he's enjoyed so far.
www.seussville.com - This is the official Dr Seuss website. It has lots of great games and everything else to do with Dr Seuss.
www.jmathpage.com - This great site has lots of math games for students from JK to Grade 8.
en.childrenslibrary.org - This is the International Children's Digital Library which has 100's of kids books from all over the world. Any child could spend days on this site.
www.robertmunsch.com - This is the official website for Robert Munsch. It's great and full of stories and games.
www.starfall.com - This popular site has tons of great word games which can help improve your child's phonic skills. And it's free. It has content for almost any grade level.
www.gamequarium.com - This site is full of great games, videos and books. This is a very expansive website with lots of tools and resources.
www.4kids.org - This is another great math and word website. This site has a little more depth and is more detailed.
These are just a few of the websites on the list and all of them are fantastic. They're not specifically geared towards children with autism or Asperger's so any child could use them. Jacob tends to be very consistent with the sites he looks at, so he may not visit any new ones for a while, so if he does visit a different site I'll be sure to let everyone know about it. I try to leave the list around the computer in hopes that Jacob will hopefully have a look and maybe try some other sites. I'm sure in the meantime everyone will enjoy visiting these sites.
WELCOME TO JIM'S AUTISM BLOG
Hi everyone and thanks for visiting our blog. My wife and I created this blog to chronicle our experience while raising a son with Asperger's syndrome. Since our son was diagnosed with an ASD at age 5, we've had a lot of questions. Lucky for us we have a great support network in place. And our blog gives us an opportunity to share what we've learned with our readers. We hope you find our blog informative and interesting. Thanks again for visiting.
