This product is designed to help explicitly teach students the difference between items that are "safe" for consumption vs. "not safe" (or items you can put in "mouth" vs "no mouth").
Included are 6 different board featuring the terms mouth/no mouth or safe/not safe with 2 different clip art depictions. There is an option to print a green and red board (to use for color cues as level one) or a white board (to use without color cues as level two)
There are 15 different icons for each category, making 30 icons you can choose that fit your needs. Icons come with a green/red boarder (level one) or a black boarder (level 2).
I created this sorting game to go along with the behavior plan of a student with PICA. I was asked to explicitly teach, then practice daily, items that were “safe” to consume and “not safe” to consume.
I am not an expert on PICA, but I have worked with multiple students over the years that have been diagnosed with PICA.
The items in this pack are common items my students ate that are both safe and not safe for consumption.
This sorting mat met fulfilled the requirements for the BIP and gave me something to work on with the student every day.
I hope this product helps you as you begin to work with your student or child that has PICA.
**This is an updated / multi-level product that can serve as a companion or replacement for my original PICA categorization file folder here**
