Recent studies indicate that mindfulness skills can help to improve memory, organizational skills, reading and math scores while providing children with the tools to handle stress. InnerIcons, an organization dedicated to creating mindfulness-based educational games for kids, strongly believes that adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as well as their parents, may benefit from mindfulness learning toys.
ASD refers to a range of conditions characterized by some degree of impaired social behavior, communication and language, and a narrow range of interests and activities that are unique to the individual and carried out repetitively. It has been clinically proven that behavioral treatment and parenting skills training programs can reduce difficulties in communication and social behavior for people with ASD and their caregivers.
According to a 2017 article published by the National Center for Biotechnology, combined mindfulness-based programs for children and their parents were beneficial for adolescents with an autism spectrum disorder. This study indicated that mindfulness tools or autism learning toys might trigger improvements in social communication, emotional and behavioral functioning, parenting and parental mindful awareness, which may last up to one year after the intervention.
“Well-documented studies have now established that mindfulness can help kids deal with stress and excel in school as well as in social interactions,” says a spokesperson for InnerIcons. “Our mindfulness games are fun for kids and their parents, and we believe that, as science shows, our products can improve the lives of many kids with ASD as well.”
InnerIcons’ mindfulness therapy game was designed by experienced teachers and consists of a series of fun activities developed to promote inner calm, peace and self-care for a healthy mind. The game focuses on visualization and social-skill building and is recommended for group play therapy.
Mindfulness refers to an individual’s ability to remain free from distraction or judgment, and aware of all thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them.
