New Product :: Sequencing Activities for ADHD, Autism, or Executive Functioning

Many students struggle with executive function skills – things like prioritizing, focusing, organizing, completing tasks, or understanding cause and effect.

These sequencing activities provide an opportunity for students to improve their executive functioning or life skills and are great for kids with ADHD, Autism, or Cognitive Impairments. Simply mix up the steps for each situation and have the student put them into the correct order. Each card includes words and pictures for readers or nonreaders and is included in full color and printer-friendly black and white!

To adjust the level of difficulty, use fewer or more steps for each situation.

Cards can also used as visual prompts. Simply post them in a convenient location to remind students how to perform each task independently.

Situations include:  

– Crossing the street
– Getting ready for bed
– Making toast
– Brushing teeth
– Raking leaves
– Making lemonade
– Building a sand castle
– Flying a kite
– Packing a lunch
– Getting ready for school
– Washing hands
– Building a snowman

– Growing a plant

New Product :: Social Emotional Comics

All right, everyone. I’m REALLY excited about this new resource…like, REALLY excited. I’ve been working on it for awhile and the groups I’ve used it with at school absolutely love it.

These comics provide students with a range of social difficulties the opportunity to observe, interpret, and respond to various social situations. Great for students with Autism, ADHD, Emotional Difficulties, or Cognitive Impairments, these comics are a fun, visual way to get students thinking about their behavior, as well as the behavior and relationships of others.

Includes 40 single-scene comics, 40 “before and after” comics, which allow students to draw what would happen before and after each scene, and several blank comics for students to create their own.

Also included with the comics is a page of questions and discussion starters to help students develop critical thinking, problem solving, and emotional intelligence skills.

Scenes depict a range of school situations in a variety of settings – gym, recess, classroom, library, hallway, office area, etc. Graphics also include various ages, from young child to high school-aged students. Here’s a preview of some of them. Let me know what you think!

And the best part is that they’ll be on sale until this weekend!

New Product :: Behavior Think Sheets

One of the most difficult parts of working with students is helping them manage their behavior. Traditional discipline such as suspensions and expulsions that has been found to be ineffective at changing behavior has left teachers and administrators feeling powerless as to how to deal with negative school behaviors.

With schools being required to use alternatives to detentions and suspensions more and more, one of the best ways to help students learn to exhibit appropriate behavior is to teach them to think about their actions and their effect on others.

These think sheets give students of any age a place to process through their own feelings about a situation, as well as to consider how their choices have affected other people like teachers, parents, other students, or principals. They’re ready to go and are great for classroom use, in-school suspension rooms, or for small group or individual counseling sessions.

6 different 2-sided sheets are presented for grades PreK-K, K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, and 9-1. Sheets for 1st grade and under contain kid-friendly graphics to help non-readers learn positive behavior and appropriate ways to handle their anger. Sheets that have graphics are presented in black and white for easy printing.

Here is a preview of some of the pages!
