Brightly designed with real-life pictures and corresponding comprehension worksheets, this activity is perfect for students with Autism and visual learners. The high-interest pictures will inspire your students to speak or describe what they are seeing in each scene. Using a combination of absurdities, familiar and unfamiliar situations, students are encouraged to ask questions, respond by pointing or even using one word answers. The easy-to-read comprehension worksheets can be used as a writing tool, too. Matching pictures clearly describe the missing word to eliminate student frustration and promoting longer segments of time involved in the task. EASY-TO-ASSEMBLE and use in your classroom TODAY!
