Match objects by photos

Match objects by photos
Task of the Month:
August, 2019

The goal of this task is for the student to match objects to photos of those objects. This task can be a component of a student’s individualized work system. Matching is a skill required for many other tasks such as putting away laundry or stocking a shelf.

Materials:

  • Everyday objects
  • Photos of the objects
  • Boxes/bins to hold the objects

Setup:

  • Take pictures of the objects the learner will match.
  • Affix a photograph to each of the boxes or bins.
    • Tips:
      • For learners with more advanced symbol representation, try using line drawings rather than photographs.
      • Extend this task by sorting a larger number of objects.
      • This task can become part of a domestic skill such as putting away dishes in the cupboard or putting laundry into drawers.
