✦I created these visual references of 20 functional signs for my non-verbal students with autism, parents, and staff members who work with the children. After I started learning signs and teaching my students I realized that the signs would not be useful if not generalized across settings. So I created printables to send home to parents, as well as hand out to our specialist teachers (gym, art, music) and any other staff who worked with the students. Includes:

Visual Reference Sheets

20 Functional Signs. Great printables to send home to parents, specialist teachers, and any other caregivers who work with the child! Includes instructions for the more difficult signs. There are 4 visual reference sheets.

Individual Posters

Large posters of each sign (one sign per poster) and instructions for the more difficult signs.


Practice learning the signs with match the picture to the word worksheets. Worksheets are differentiated (draw a line to match and use a word bank to match.) There are also cut/ paste worksheets (match the sign to word.) A total of 12 worksheets.


Flashcards for all 20 signs. For best use, print flashcards on cardstock and laminate. You can put them on a key ring for portable use.

Useful daily and year after year!!
