for Children with Autism & Related communication difficulties.
I have been working on these questioning resources to use in my classroom, all handmade 🙂
My aim is to have an interactive wall in my room which will encourage and guide conversations and evaluations in Art.
I will use the Who, Why, What, When, Where and How to prompt the children to ask a certain type of question and then the Did, Is, Can, Might, Would and Will descriptive cards to help to expand the questions. I aim to use these questioning resources with a range of children with Autism and related communication difficulties to help to direct their questions in a visual way.
I am using the SCERTS model as a basis for this to enable developmentally appropriate expectations on the conversations we are expecting from them. My hope is that this will then transfer into other subject areas so that children are getting the same support across the board enabling them to generalise and practice their skills.
Emotions Social Story Resource for Children with Autism
Mr Men Emotions – How do you feel today?
Mr Men Emotions Social Story – How do you feel today? A resource to help children to talk about their emotions in a fun and relaxed way.
The Mr Men Emotions Social Story is a resource to be used with all children, but especially those with Autism to help to talk about emotions and how they feel.
Each page is written in a social story type format for children to understand and includes sections to fill in about what they look like, things that make them feel that way and what they need when they are feeling that way.
Following on from all the positive feedback on this resource I have made a few changes to it to hopefully make it work better for more people. I have added disgusted & surprised so now the 6 basic emotions feature along with other common emotions.
I like to give each child a personalised version and then use the presentation for class discussion.
