The Autism Spectrum Disorder Problem Solving tool is designed to help individuals identify a problem, judge its size and come up with possible solutions and outcomes.
Individual’s with autism often need to learn how to view and solve problems effectively. This tool helps to teach problem solving by breaking down the task into manageable steps and providing a visual framework to help guide the process.
The ultimate goal is to have the student internalize the problem solving strategy so that they can go through the steps without the actual tool present to solve real life problems.
Teaching students to use this or any problem solving strategy can take a lot of work and time but giving students the gift of greater independence is worth it.
