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.
A Task Analysis is great of 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.
Check marks are provided if you want to use these when teaching the activity. Place a check after each activity completed. To use them over and over again, laminate the checks and add hard velcro to the back. Laminate the Task Analysis boards and place soft velcro in the space provided after each step of the activity. Fade out the checks as soon as the student learns mastery.
