Spud Trooper

Spud Trooper
Task of the Month:
October, 2019

Assembling a Potato Head Toy is a task that allows the student to work independently using a Work System.

Materials you'll need:

  • Mr. Potato Head Spud Trooper, or adapt this using any Potato Head character of interest to your student.
  • Instructions with pictures

The student can follow adapted instructions given in picture form available here and in the attachment below.

Work systems allow a student to work independently in the classroom and eventually in work settings.

Tasks for work systems should be directly related to a student’s IEP goals. Work systems include preferred and motivating activities.

Use ‘graduated guidance’ if a student requires support while completing a work system task. Briefly, this means providing enough physical guidance to prevent error; reducing this support as the student gains independence. For additional information, refer to Activity Schedules for Children with Autism, Teaching Independent Behaviour by L. McClannahan & P. Krantz (First Edition: 1999, Second Edition: 2010).
