Put in Tasks

A few of the teachers I have been working with have requested some updated put in tasks as theirs were well worn. Some of the tasks require wrist manipulation and some pincer grasp. Here are some of the ones I came up with today...

Thumb & finger pincer grasp...This is for a group of kids who have been working on OT tasks and have mastered pulling larger items off a container.  I used "gems" for the pieces.

Wrist manipulation...This task was to replace a very loved task in one of the classrooms.

This task was for a younger child working on wrist manipulation.

I'm working on a few adaptive books for next term and will post them as soon as they are complete.


3rd Time is a Charm

A few years ago, I decided to start a blog around my self-contained Autistic classroom. Not long after, my world literally turned upside down and moved 1/2 way around the world. I tried to keep up with the blog but life kept throwing curve balls. 

As par for the course, my life has once again been turned upside down. Now, I am a stay at home mom doing a lot of volunteer work at my kids school & for former coworkers. 

The large majority of my volunteer work has centered on developing tasks for the classes I am working with. This time around, I am just going to focus on tasks for use in a TEACCH modeled classroom. Hence, I am resurrecting my blog. 

Feel free to tag, pin, repost anything you feel is useful. I'm also open for ideas,so if you want me to create a task focused on a specific skill just let me know. 

It feels good to be (partially) back!
