Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, In My Neighborhood is a ten page book (eleven with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book would be an engaging way to teach children about places in the neighborhood. Once printed, I suggest you laminate the individual pages for reading. I've also included matching pieces for vocabulary words I have chosen to highlight in the text. This book focuses on the fringe words: fire house, post office, dentist office, park, police office, store, hospital, school, home. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.
Other products in my store that would be great for teaching a neighborhood theme:
Adapted Book for students with Autism & Special Needs: In My Neighborhood
Adapted Book for students with Autism: My Neighborhood, a book about community

Adapted books would also be good resources for any young learner, an early childhood special education classroom, simple literacy or math centers for preschool and prekindergarten classrooms and home schoolers who are teaching students with unique abilities. Because the principles of teaching vocabulary are very similar for both language delayed children with special needs and new English learners, my books are also an excellent resource for an ELL/ELD/EFL classroom for young children. Created by Miss Kim Designs for the unique learners in your life.
This book is very similar to my adapted book Adapted Book: My Neighborhood, a book about community
. The clip art is diffferent and some of the areas featured are slightly different but there is some repetition. Please look at the previews for both books before purchasing.
