This a tool that I use on a daily basis with my students with autism. The cards with actual pictures are used with my lower students. It provides a way for them to initiate an interaction with both peers and staff. The cards with conversational phrases provide a model for students to follow during a role-play situation. The possibilities are endless. Communication is so crucial for these students!
Directions: I provided an editable document. You are able to insert pictures and type the names of students, staff, family members, etc. You are also able to change or add to the conversational phrases. When you are finished with editing, you may choose to laminate, hole punch, and place the cards onto a ring. Good luck and happy teaching!
