Using a combination of videos and Google Slides products, this toolkit provides families with information about how and why to use visual supports, ways to use or make token boards for keeping students engaged, and embed communication and life skills into daily routines.
The toolkit is perfect for students with autism and significant disabilities of all ages who need assistance with working at home through picture schedules and token boards. It is designed for teachers to assign needed supports for families.
The videos are created to help families see how to use tools and strategies to keep their children engaged in instruction from setting up a working area in the home to implementing token boards and visual schedules.
