Autism Adapted Vocabulary Books: Clothing Words

Type: digital

Students with autism will love these interactive books teaching receptive and expressive clothing vocabulary. The books are differentiated to work with early learners of the skills and increase complexity through the books as the student masters the skill. They can be used in morning meeting and group story times as interactive books that reinforce these concepts. They can also be used in discrete trials or PRT instruction 1-1 or in small groups to explicitly teach vocabulary.

The books are set up so that teachers can use errorless teaching, to prevent errors, or error correction as is appropriate for the students. Within the packet is a sequence of steps for teaching the skill in discrete trials as well as a data sheet for tracking progress.

Finally, once mastered, these books can easily be placed in a student’s independent work tasks and they can practice the receptive vocabulary they have mastered to maintain it.
