I’ve been enjoying the flow of ideas that have come from the Ablenet Remarkable Ideas webpage. They come to me in an email format on a regular basis so I can see the awesome ideas people have come up with to include early childhood, school aged children and adults with a range of disabilities into everyday activities and settings. Lots of people such as special education teachers have contributed their ideas.
Whether it is helping the student to be a part of making hot chocolate, having a game of ten pin bowling or blending up a surprise concoction you can check out these ideas and have some fun! Use them as they are or adapt them to your own situation. You could also learn about some new ways to use a Step by Step for communication or another way to use a Powerlink and make an electrical device accessible.
The ideas allow you to target a range of skills such as cause and effect, waiting for your turn, visual follows, anticipation, group working, numeracy, team work, social scripts, following steps to achieve goal – just to name a few!
If you come up with any ideas of your own, then we’d love to hear them too!
