They are designed to help students working on identifying items by feature (characteristics/adjectives), function, and class (category).

Please see the preview for a cross listing of these materials with specific items from common curricula / assessments including the STAR: Strategies for Teaching Based on Autism Research; the ABLLS-R: Assessment of Basic Language and Learning-Revised; the VB-MAPP: Verbal Behavior-Milestones Assessment and Placement Planning; and the PEAK: Promoting the Emergence of Advance Knowledge.

This set of materials can be used in multiple ways depending on how they are constructed.
