Object and Functions
You can do a lot with common objects you have around the home! Gather a basket or box and fill with everyday objects for this activity. (sock, shoe, spoon, cup, hat, bear, play food, comb, toothbrush, soap, etc.) Play guess the item - set out two or three items from your basket and ask your child to find the one your are describing. Next, switch roles and have your child give you clues to guess an object if he/she is able. Examples of clues: Find something your wear on your feet, Find something you eat, Find something that is red, Find something that you use to keep your teeth clean, etc.

AT-HOME VISUAL SCHEDULE!
For students with limited verbal skills and language impairments, I realize that being at home for an extended time can upset the normal school routine. Please check out this great visual resource you can make at home to facilitate your new daily routine. It also includes an incentive chart! Please email me if you do not have access to a printer and need help accessing this resource.
