DescriptionThis game helps your child to learn to recognise and choose colours. The method is based on Discrete Trials as used in Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA). Discrete trials involves breaking down learning into small repeatable steps ("trials") and is a very popular way of educating children with autism and other SENs.
In each 'trial' the child is asked to tap a particular colour. This request is spoken and written, plus there are optional gestural prompts.
A visual reward is played when the correct answer has been selected!
You can choose how many options will be available to choose from - there can be 2, 3 or 4.
You can choose also the level of gestural support:
- "Full gestures" means that an animated hand will move to the correct colour after the spoken and written prompts.
- "Partial gestures" means that the animated hand will move in the direction of the correct colour, but not right onto it.
You can adjust the level of gestural support as you go, depending on the ability of your child and the progress you are making.
This game also features some PCS symbols, which you may be familiar with if you use Boardmaker. The Picture Communication Symbols ©1981–2010 by Mayer-Johnson LLC. All Rights Reserved Worldwide. Used with permission.
