Our whole goal of community based instruction is to help our students reach a level of success & independence in their communities and often times we need to provide certain supports to help them become successful. Fading out staff/parental presence can be a challenge - insert textual and/or picture schedules & checklists!
I created these community prep checklists as a way to have my students be more accountable for getting themselves ready for a community outing whether it's going shopping, bowling, the mall, to their job, etc.
There are PDF & editable formats included in this resource with lots of possibilities for customization:
-Create checklists using velcro icons
-Cut & paste to create laminated picture checklists
-Create a choice menu & have students write out their own checklists
Find what works best for your student & push him/her to be as independent as possible by providing supports that allow you to fade out support staff presence over time.
I hope you find these to be helpful for your students. If you have any questions or are looking for a modified format/size or additional picture-text icons please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
