An ‘Object Mini-Schedule’ is a sequential visual display of items to cue the student to understand the exact expectations of an activity. It can be followed with a favorite item or activity. If the student can see exactly what he/she is supposed to do, behavior issues can often be decreased or prevented.
I have a student who is integrated into my art class. He is nonverbal and has autism. When he arrives he drops to the floor and cries. The paraprofessional does hand-over hand the whole time then takes him to the back of the room and they play with geometric blocks which he likes. How can I make this time more enjoyable and productive for him?
