Vocational Tasks

As the new school year is well underway,  I am seeing the needs of students and the different tasks that will benefit them to learn new skills and reach IEP goals.

We have such a variety of skill levels and I really try to make tasks adaptable for everyone.  We may have one or two students that read well and can do a task from beginning to end with little or no assistance where others may be non verbal or limited with reading skills that need help.

What is nice to see is the students working together to help one another.  For example,  I have a donut order filling task that two of our students like to work on together.  The non verbal student likes to separate all the donuts by flavors and the other student fills the orders by reading the order cards.

No matter what the task, offering variety helps the students learn several skills needed to become more independent as well as learn valuable skills for various job types.

Here is my newest task that helps teach fast food working skills by filling orders.  To see what the task looks like, please click the link below and check out the preview.
