A Task Analysis is a visual step-by-step guide of how to do an activity.
Take a task, such as brushing your teeth, and break it down into all of its steps. You may need to teach some of the individual steps of an activity.
Task Analysis are great for students who cannot complete all the steps of an activity. This tool provides a visual model of the expectations.
The steps of a Task Analysis should be:
One behavior per step, if possible
Used to reduce verbal cues
A Task Analysis is a great tool to use to collect data on a student’s performance during a particular activity.
Blank boxes are provided to the left of each step. This is done for a few reasons. Depending on your student, you may want to add numbers there or laminate and check each step as the student goes. The Task Analysis should be placed near where the activity occurs and used as a teaching tool until the skill is mastered.
