Life can take some strange turns.
SHOEBOXTASKS: Activities Designed with Success in Mind Handbook: $25.00, includes s&h in Continental U.S.
This handbook is designed for teachers, therapists and parents who are working with young autistic children. This in-depth look at ShoeboxTasks—from history to current applications—explains how these beginning level academic activities are used within the North Carolina TEACCH Programs' Structured Teaching Approach.
In addition, subjects such as motivation, routines, eliciting communication, and the differences between One-on-One and Independent Work sessions are addressed. Examples are given for managing challenging behaviors as well as for making the transition from ShoeboxTasks to more abstract activities.
The ideas presented in this handbook have been implemented with great success in homes and classrooms in North Carolina and elsewhere for many years. Catherine Faherty's program, “Understanding Friends,” is described in detail for use in mainstream classrooms. For parents, suggestions are made on how to structure home teaching sessions with their child.
