One of the most difficult parts of teaching young children with autism for me is trying to determine what and if they are learning when they are non-verbal. I developed this assessment as a way to not only assess if they are learning a concept (in this situation, shapes) but also to teach them how to use the assessment by adding cues that they can use to help when they are pointing to the correct answer.
This product is an 18 page .pdf file that you print and bind at the top. The first page should be a field of 3 shapes with no visual cues so you can simply ask the child "which shape a circle?" and have them point to the shape. For children not yet ready to do this, the field of 3 page is followed by 3 identical pages, each with a visual cue for a different color on that page. The visual cue is simply the question "which color is orange?" with a small copy of the shape following the question. This repeats twice more, for a total of 9 colors and 3 field of 3 pages. The final page is all 9 colors in a field of 9 for use with verbal prompts only. Also included are the data sheets I created to go with this assessment, but you are always free to create your own.
This product is included in my Shape Theme Bundle: 16 ShapeThemed Products
In addition to folder games and my newest assessment tools, I love using adapted books in my classroom. My adapted books are created for use in pre-K, preschool, early childhood special education and child care classrooms. Each book is interactive and focuses on new vocabulary.
