First Runner-Up in the 2006 Writer's Notes Book Awards, this book utilizes the strengths of children with ASD to help them develop new skills. Tasks are visually oriented, consistent; expectations are clear. Using easy-to-make "task boxes" children learn:
  • motor
  • matching
  • sorting
  • reading
  • writing
  • and math skills
Tasks include:
  • pushing items through a small openings (children love the "resistance" it takes to push them through)
  • matching simple, identical pictures or words
  • sorting objects by color, size, or shape.
Ideas are plentiful, materials colorful, and children love the repetitive nature of the tasks, which help them learn to work independently Sample data sheets are included.

"While reviewing this book, I immediately recognized some activities that my son did . . . and I remembered how much he benefited from these activities . . . such as sorting and matching, reading, math, and motor tasks. The book also provides IEP goals in an Appendix, which can be a helpful resource for parents."
