During my years as a Transtition Teacher in a county-level special education classroom for young people with severe multiple disabilities it was our goal to make sure every student got out into the community every week, and, preferably, every day.
Occassionally I have had students who needed help communicating and this menu is the byproduct of many outings supporting my students and students in other classrooms.
This is drawn in thick black lines for the visually impaired and is in black and white to save your ink cartridges. In my opinion, students will buy into supports like this if they are part of the creation so I'd suggest coloring it with the student and talking and modeling how to point at what you want as you color. Have another teacher practice with some milk cartons as you color and comment or have staff throw in supporting comments. "Cindy, I sure like how (the student) told you they wanted chocolate milk! Let's do that at lunchtime in the cafeteria!"
I'm covering the basics because I do a lot of speaking at college teaching programs and like to share things with pre-service teachers.
Please note: these are the food items that I mostly needed (and I had the ablitity to quick-draw something on the spot that weren't saved or good enough to share (or got mustard all over them). I am willing to add food pages if requested. Drop me a note and I wll draw you a bowl of oatmeal (or whatever :0)
