This is a resource designed to increase communication opportunities while engaging in structured play. Visuals include Mr. Potato Head, Legos, toy cars, toy airplane and requesting art materials (ex- what color paper? what materials will you use?). There are also two levels of communication strips that can be used in a variety of play skills activities. The first set of visuals includes 12 different commenting/requesting sentence strips (e.g. roll the dice, let's play again). The second level of visuals are intended for students who average one to two word utterances when verbally communicating. There is also a set of visual rules included to outline behavior expectations.
This resource would be great to support play goals for the VB-MAPP or ABLLS assessments. Intended for use with students who require visual supports to communicate and comment.
Visuals for each toy/game: make two color copies. Laminate both pages. Cut out one set of icons and place soft velcro on the back of these icons. Place hard velcro on the icons on the template sheet. Students can select their requests/choices by velcroing icons to the template. For communication/commenting visuals laminate, make one single hole punch and use a small binder clip to store visuals together for easy access.
