The Materials Mats

Materials are available to start teaching the skill. There are Materials for low level and higher level students. Any materials can be printed on card stock x2 for matching. Materials can always be printed gray scale or color. With cardstock, they will last longer for classroom use.

The Student Report Booklet

This booklet can be used as a paper copy or as a Google doc. It is used to keep track of what students can do, what they are working on and when they have mastered a skill. It can also be used to determine regression or dismiss a skill that a student cannot learn based on their disability.
