Choice Making boards can be helpful for students who have difficulties understanding speech alone or who have memory issues.
- Two full colour choice making templates
- One print-friendly choice making template
- 18 breakfast clip art symbols (line drawings) to get you started with offering choices within routine activities!
How do I use it?
Begin using the board with two choices and build up to three when your students are showing an understanding and ability to attend to 3 symbols.
To teach early choice making, offer one highly preferred option (cookie) and a least preferred option (banana).
Ask your child what they want by using the choice board.
Name the choices while pointing at the symbols e.g. “Do you want a cookie or a banana?”
Repeat the choices if your child does not respond.
Physically prompt your child to point to the choices if your child does not respond.
Name the choice your child chooses.
Your child’s reward for making choice is to receive the item they have chosen. For example, “Cookie! Tim wants cookie” while giving your child a cookie.
