Tutorial and Photos: Independent Work Task System
I realized recently that I have mentioned my work task system tons of times but haven’t gone into too much depth about how this works. So get ready to find out more than you’ve ever wanted to know. I kind of obsessed with it – only because it saves me tons of time and tons of space. Well who doesn’t like that? This system stores over 50 different academic, fine motor, and vocational work tasks and is used by my students who are both higher functioning and lower functioning. So, yeah. It rocks my world.
I know a lot of autism classrooms use the TEACCH 3 bin work task system – I used to but honestly it takes up too much room! And it takes forever to put in new tasks each day. I tried out a few different options – but this has worked the best for us. We have been using it for years! I still use one 3 bin work task for one of my students because I do love the structure it provides for my students who struggle to work independently.
So here is my video tutorial
Here are some of my tasks included in the bins:
