Students with autism and cognitive impairment often have difficulty making choices, including answering Yes or No questions. The questions in this activity assist students in learning how to answer “Yes” or “No” questions using real pictures and words that complement any sight word program, especially those designed for students with learning disabilities.
✿ WHAT THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS:
✴ 36 strips with YES-NO questions
✴ 1 YES and 1 NO mat
❤ PERSONAL NOTE:
When my student with autism was in second grade. I struggled to find ways to teach him to answer YES-NO questions. He was game for anything and there was NO food he would turn down (so offering him a turnip would not elicit a ‘No.”). If I showed him a sock and asked, “Is this an apple?” he’d just laugh. I was completely lost until he learned enough sight words to use these YES-NO Questions on his own. He got it right away and would sit giggling when answering questions like, “See a horse?” for a picture of a cat. I loved it.
✿ CUSTOMER TIPS:
Each question comes on a strip and is accompanied by a real-life picture. Questions vary in complexity. Students can use the Yes and No mats provided to sort the strips or you can label two pencil cases “Yes” and “No” and have them sort the strips into the cases. To encourage verbal expression, you can use the strips like flash cards and have the students answer the questions and tell you why or why not. It can also be used as an assessment. All of my ELA products are designed to aid teachers and parents in differentiating for their struggling readers and students with special needs.
