Children with autism and other behavioral challenges frequently encounter breakdowns in communication where they are unable to express themselves successfully in order to solve a problem. This product is intended to be taught as a problem solving solution. It is interactive and portable. Easy for parents to take in the car, grocery store, or for use at the beach. Similarly portable for teachers!
There are three levels of problems, Green problems (1) are easy to solve and are a visual reminder to take a deep breath and solve the problem. Yellow problems (2) have interactive choices to make a request when a student is feeling upset. Red problems (3) are for children who are very frustrated and need to request to enter a calm area before the problem becomes a crisis behavior. This could be the first step to problem solving for children with autism or other behavioral challenges!
Included are visual directions to create this product!
