Your purchase consists of 1 downloadable PDF file consisting of 75 flashcards. The flashcards are designed to be printed out and do not work as well when viewed on an electronic device. When printing flashcards, ensure you set your printer to your desired size cards, i.e. 5″x7″, 4″x6″. We recommend loading your printer with paper already cut to size for best results.
Our flashcards are not grouped in pairs like most flashcards. We use a three card system with a key word/concept on one card, a picture/diagram on another card, and the definition on the third card. Our system is very similar to the Montessori task card or command card concept. There are numerous ways to use the cards to teach and test your child. You can lay them out one group at a time and read them together. You can lay out the key words and pictures together and have the child match the correct definition. You can mix them all up and have the child match them all. You are truly limited only by your imagination. The flashcards work best when paired with the corresponding lesson and are designed to test your child's grasp of the lesson. For children with autism who have trouble with expressive language, the flashcards are a built-in test without the need for language. For a child with autism or any child who has limited expressive language, the cards are a necessity.
VisualCurriculums lessons and flashcards are designed specifically for children with autism, however neurotypical children love using the lessons and flashcards as fun study guides!
