This is a kit for setting up a structured work system (also called basket system, independent work system) for students with autism and other special needs. This kit contains the schedules, finished signs and directions needed to start a basic SWS for students in middle school and high school. Another kit has been developed for elementary school students with more age-appropriate visuals for the schedules and reinforcers. You can find that kit at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Structured-Work-System-Starter-Kit-for-Autism-Elementary-Version
All the items in this kit can be reproduced for as many systems as you need within your classroom.
What this kit contains:
--A sign for the SWS area of the classroom
--1 set of colored matching schedule pieces with numbers on them for students who are not able to match symbols.
--1 set of number matching schedule pieces 1-30. These can be printed in B&W if needed.
--1 set of coins to match for students who can’t match numbers.
--2 finished signs for the finished area or finished box/bin.
--1 set of common reinforcer or “what’s next” pictures
One of these can be used to set up multiple systems in one classroom. Please buy multiple licenses if you want to use them in multiple classrooms.
More information about work systems and their uses can be found at my blog Autism Classroom News
Work systems are useful in resource and self-contained classrooms. They are also an excellent tool to use for including children with special needs in the general education classroom. Parents can also use them at home to keep children engaged in work or leisure activities. They are an evidence-based intervention for children with autism. They are relevant to the common core curriculum dependent upon the tasks you put in them.
Please let me know if you have any questions about how they can be used in your classroom.
