Touch 'em All Baseball, Game Kit is a tactile and visual game designed for children with Autism and other nuerological disabilities to play. It is a fun way to learn about baseball and practice numerous other skills. Touch 'em All Baseball is meant for two players (although users may play against themselves). The game is easy to learn, and the complexity for different levels of play can be changed. Players need to be familiar with the basic rules of baseball for counting balls, strikes, and outs; for advancing runners; and for scoring, but don't need a lot of baseball expertise to enjoy this game. This kit includes a set of tactile/print “stick figure” diagrams, which illustrate the motions of pitching and batting along with some of the spatial arrangements that apply in baseball, and suggested physical activities that correspond to the images. For students who show an interest, consider these activities for broadening their appreciation and tying the game into other content areas such as writing and notetaking; math and measurement; probability; and physical education.
