Autism Receptive Vocabulary Activities for Fall: Feature Function Class



Using a fall theme with apples and pumpkins, this combination of print-and-go and reusable materials is great for early learners, ABA programs, discrete trials and speech therapy. They are designed to provide a variety of ways for special education students and early learners to practice receptive vocabulary skills beyond just naming items.

I developed them with the idea of using them with students in discrete trials to be able to administer trials to more than one student and to add some variety to the materials for teaching these skills to prevent students from getting bored. They are designed to help students working on identifying items by feature (characteristics/adjectives), function, and class (category) with a fall theme.

Please see the preview for a cross listing of these materials with specific items from common curricula / assessments including the STAR: Strategies for Teaching Based on Autism Research; the ABLLS-R: Assessment of Basic Language and Learning-Revised; the VB-MAPP: Verbal Behavior-Milestones Assessment and Placement Planning; and the PEAK: Promoting the Emergence of Advance Knowledge.
