This visual story can be used to encourage independence and flexibility for students who have one-on-one aides throughout the day. I had a student who we were attempting to encourage independence while working, however when his para-pro would go to work with other students he would get upset. Using this story we were able to open the conversation to allowing his para to interact with other students while supporting him when needed.
