To set up the activity, cut out the cards and paperclip the matches together. Put cards into a bin. Then, adhere the "I like it" and "I don't like it" signs into two other bins. Two players sit next to each other. A player picks up one of the paperclipped pairs and each player gets one and drops their card into the "I like it!" or "I don't like it bin" Play continues until all cards are gone. This is an awesome way to get two students at any verbal level (from nonverbal to highly verbal) to share their preferences! Tomorrow we'll add some more themes to support this activity!
Sharing preferences for individuals with autism can be challenging due to social and communication challenges. Use today's free autism resource to help teach the concept of expressing preferences in a social setting.
