Children with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) often have difficulties knowing the difference between big and small problems and will display a huge reaction for every unfavorable situation. I have broken down different sizes of problems (no problem, small, medium and big) into easy to understand differences so that a child can determine what size the problem is and then what kind of reaction is expected. I have also used this with children who don't have ASD but struggle with huge reactions. This packet comes with:
~ Printouts to make a poster sized problem thermometer with directions
~A lesson plan
~ 24 Sample problem behaviors to use with the lesson plan as well as a blank template to make your own.
~An 8 1/2 x 11 sized student problem thermometer that can be kept in a desk or hung up in the room to use.
