Welcome to Aven's Corner. Aven is our 3 year old son with autism. I am Aven's father and the co-creator of this site. As long as I can remember I have always been fascinated with the inner workings of objects, spinning wheels, and insects. Growing up I frequently "stimmed" with my fingers in front of my face when I was deep in thought or excited. These fascinations presented unique learning difficulties for me. My parents worked very hard to find ways to engage me and help me learn. I grew up to become a software developer and It was not until I met my wife, a special education teacher, that I realized my strange quirks could possibly be a form of mild autism.

     When Aven was diagnosed with ASD I felt as though  we had a unique bond that most people could not understand. He also displays the same "stimming" behavior I do. Instead of cartoons and toys Aven focuses on things like fans, ants, and helicopters.  We wanted to get Aven involved in using the computer but we found that most online games for kids were too busy, small, and cluttered for Aven. He needed

a game that was full screen with no distractions and a unique reinforcer that would stimulate his mind. My wife and I decided to write a few simple games to teach Aven how to use the computer and turn his fascination with certain objects into a learning experience. Aven quickly learned how to move the mouse over items and eventually learned how to click on objects. He responded so well that I have continued making games for him and Aven's Corner was born. 

     All of the free kids games at Aven’s Corner are developed with young children with autism in mind, but they appeal to all children because of their simplicity.  We have also included fun online kids activities for parents and teachers to do with their children. We hope that our site is beneficial to your child and you have a great time at Aven's Corner!
