Mind Match is a memory card game that aims to teach autistic children how to recognise different facial expressions and emotions. The game includes a deck of facial expression cards, and a deck of cards featuring written emotions. The aim of the game is to collect the most amount of matches. A sectioned colour wheel with a spinning arrow is also featured in the game. The players take turns spinning the wheel and then have a go at unturning a card from each deck in hopes of finding a match. This adds an extra element of fun and longevity to the game.
We have aimed to create a product that incorporates visuals and touch into the gameplay because we know that sensory learning is proven to help educate children with autism.
