Anatomy & Human Body Activities for Kids

Some autistic and hyperlexic kids have an interest in human anatomy. Here are some fun human body activities for kids, including printable human anatomy activities and more!

One common interest many hyperlexic kids have is an interest in human anatomy. They'll quickly go from learning about basic body parts to learning about muscles and their names, the functions of different organs, parts of the nervous system, and so on. 

My hyperlexic son hasn't really shown much of an interest in anatomy outside of reading a few books on the topic. However, I know that many hyperlexic kids do gravitate towards this particular interest. Even when they're only like four or five years of age!

So if your hyperlexic child is currently into human anatomy and you're looking for ways to feed that interest, then you're in luck. Below you'll find a few different human body activities for kids, including some book recommendations and some awesome printable human body activities.
