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.
