Task analysis is the process of breaking down a task into smaller steps for students who struggle with multi-step directions. Steps can be taught one at a time until they are mastered. With mastery of each step the student becomes more independent in his/her ability to perform the larger skill/task. These cards use task analysis with visual checklists to teach everyday life skills (see the list of specific skills taught below).

For best results, print and laminate the cards. There are boxes in the top right corner of each picture are for you (or your student) to check off each step (or use stickers) as it is completed. Use vis-à-vis (wet erase) markers on the laminated cards. Place the laminated cards in easy to view places where the student will be completing each task (such as the bathroom mirror).

Six Task Analysis Cards are Included (each with six steps):
1. How to Wash Your Hands
2. Getting Ready for Bed (with three versions/options)
3. Getting Ready for School (with three versions/options)
4. Crossing the Street Safely
5. How to Pack a Lunch
6. How to Make Jelly Toast
