Increase a special-needs child's sensory perception by spraying a table with shaving cream. Assist the child in using his or her hands to paint with the medium. Continue the sensory lesson by filling a tub with rice and having the child dig his hands into the bowl.
Write and perform a play to develop the child's social skills. Acting allows the child to model social behavior that can help them perform outside of the home.
Give the child a camera and ask him or her to take photos throughout the day. Taking pictures teaches attentiveness and gives the child a chance to explore her creativity.
