Address eight social dining issues in lessons designed to improve behavior. The menu for success includes straightforward language, simple illustrations, comprehension questions, and role-play activities.
Each four-picture story addresses specific behaviors related to the theme of eating with others. Your students learn why certain behaviors are wrong and a correct, alternative behavior as a replacement.
To reinforce learning, each lesson includes 10 Yes/No and 10 Wh- and How comprehension questions that will also improve expressive language skills. A simple role-play activity and easy to find props round out each lesson creating an exceptional learning environment for students with autism. The lessons are easy to adapt to individual, small group, or classroom therapy sessions.
