Unlike ‘big chess’, minichess is designed to be accessible and beneficial for all children, not just very bright children with supportive parents.
We believe that every child can both enjoy and learn from playing simple strategy games, and that these games have a particular benefit for children whose brains work in a different way.
Minichess is fun, easy and free, and should be a part of every special needs teacher’s toolbox.
Our next series of posts will explain in more detail how both minichess and ‘big chess’ can transform the lives of children with special needs.
If you’re a teacher or a parent please contact me to find out more.
