How to Teach Winning Versus Losing: Good Sport Rules
(Visuals for Autism and Aspergers)
Recently requested visuals from a parent of three boys with autism, this winning versus losing visual aide set provides detailed explanations of what is appropriate to do and say when winning or losing. Three different charts highlight important characteristics of winners and losers, and provide realistic strategies and scripted phrases that can be used during competition.
Also included are three different versions of a "Good Sport Monitor" based on the widely successful 5 point behavior scale. I highly recommend using any visuals as a teaching tool during a calm, relaxed setting before utilizing them in a heated situation. Provide your student with the opportunity to discuss the charts, act out examples, observe others, or participate in video modeling. Once comfortable with the charts, they will be much more successful when an actual situation occurs.
Directions: Print the chart or charts that best your student or students. I use the small one for students to keep at their work areas, in their folders or even wear on a lanyard around the neck. The larger ones can also be used at a personal work space or stored in an accessible spot to be utilized during teaching times. Glue the printed chart on construction paper or cardstock. Laminate and cut out. Use the supplied arrow and tape it to a clothespin. This allows the teacher to move the arrow to the appropriate volume category. If a clothespin is to cumbersome, use a paperclip to easily move around.
