This resource provides an explanation of various games best suited for children who may have cognitive or physical limitations caused by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Due to the nature of a spectrum disorder not all of the selected games will be appropriate for all children. Some changes and modifications will need to be made in order for the participants to safely participate. For example, some children with hyposensitivity may not recognize when they are becoming overheated. Most of the games can be played indoors and outdoors, with some minor changes.
