Visual Work Tasks For Beginning Learners On The Autism Spectrum First runner-up in the 2006 Writer's Notes Book Awards, this book utilizes the strengths of children with ASD to help them develop new skills. Tasks are visually oriented, consistent and expectations are clear. Children learn motor, matching, sorting, reading, writing, and math skills using easy-to-make "task boxes." Tasks include pushing items through small openings (children love the resistance it takes to push them through); matching simple, identical pictures or words; as well as sorting objects by color, size, or shape. Ideas are plentiful, materials colorful, and children love the repetitive nature of the tasks, which help them learn to work independently! Sample data sheets are included.
