Autism Activities: What? questions (objects and their functions)
This product targets the following:
Developing an understanding of “What?” questions
Vocabulary relating to various objects, as well as object functions (nouns and verbs)
The targets are addressed by means of an interactive matching game. Each object is represented by a picture with a corresponding action (function) picture.
Please note that there are two sets of pictures that can be used in the matching game: one set with pictures only, and one containing pictures and written text. When working with children on the Autism Spectrum, it is impossible to predetermine which set will work best. Some children enjoy the written text and benefit from it. Others will read the answers and rely on the text without focusing on the content. Some may not be able to read and may be distracted by the text. Use your own discretion when deciding to use pictures only or pictures and text.
