Do sports activities, brain games. Play truth or dare but on a piece of paper
You didn't give an age but when my son was younger he was within a classroom with all severely autistic kids. Their favorite thing be one of those playschool tables that looks like a picnic table that you could take the lid sour. Everyday the teacher would put something different in it. Shaving cream, cotton ball, dried beans,sand, wet and floating toys,just be creative. Deaf kids enjoy feeling different texture too.
Actually, music undertakings of certain sorts could be appropriate even for children with severe hearing loss. Deaf inhabitants still can have rhythm, and if the children have even some hearing, they can benefit. Do your musical deeds so that they are paired with other senses - for example - dancing, clapping, marching. That means of access, the children with hearing impairments can see what you are doing and also do the movements.

Other activities that could be appropriate would be arts and crafts. Kids near autism sometimes don't like the feel of messy substances, but here are some ideas: Painting - next to brushes, fingers, toothbrushes, dish scrubbers, partially inflated balloons, bubble wrap - use your imagination. You can paint various objects such as cut fruits and veggies, leaves, etc., and after use them to make prints on paper.
Stickers are usually popular with almost everyone. Shaving cream is a classic - tolerate them spread it out, encourage them to write their names or make pictures contained by it, etc. If you have white boards, the kids can make pictures on the white board with marker. Then you lightly spray a paper with marine, place it on the white board and rub - the paper picks up the image from the white board. Kids think this is close to magic.

Games are also a good choice, but keep them particularly simple. I teach children with special needs, rather bit younger than the children you are talking about, but even the simplest games like "Duck, Duck, Goose" will probably inevitability to be modified. Here is how we do simple circle games: Everyone is sitting, either in a chair or on a runner square. (You could also make an X with masking cassette on the floor - but it really helps if it is very clear where respectively child is supposed to sit.) The first child gets an object to hold - for one example, a toy monkey. The teacher have something - for example, a toy alligator, and she chases the child around the circle until the child returns to his original place. Then he passes the monkey (or whatever) to the next child, and the cycle is repeated. (I enjoy described an activity we do that is connected to the children's rhyme about "5 little monkeys, sitting contained by a tree, teasing Mr. Alligator, 'Can't catch me!'" My students LOVE this game - they would play it until I am too tired to chase them any more!) We do this team game with all sorts of variations - a bird trying to fence in up with a worm, a farmer trying to catch up next to a turkey, etc. etc.

Bubbles are usually a great hit - blowing them, popping them, chasing them. Another simple but almost universally popular activity is using a flashlight. We turn out the lights in the room, and I have one kid at a time try to "catch" the flimsy by stepping on the beam, touching it with their hand, sitting on it, etc.

Hope this give you some ideas to start with. Source(s): I am a special education trainer and also spent many years as a recreation leader for children beside developmental disabilities.
