My inspiration for these activities... A portion of my caseload has always been students with autism or with a variety of moderate to severe developmental disabilities. The last 5 years I have worked with older students. I found that many of my go-to activities were not appropriate to the ages of my students. With my young and older students, I noticed that they responded better with simpler designs. After researching and trialing using evidenced-based practices, I designed these thematic units to support communication growth. They were created to be flexible for a variety of goals and skill levels. These activities have increased the effectiveness of my group and individual sessions.
