SLP Jill Kuzma provides a series of materials she has developed to help elementary school children with high-functioning autism handle change. Among them is a PowerPoint slide show that teaches about understanding change, “quantifying” degrees of change and building skills to work through difficulty with change. Kuzma further describes the PowerPoint:
“[It] kind of follows a social story format. The slides define change for kids in terms of…those that are predictable (‘expected’ changes), and those…that can throw a person for a loop (‘unexpected changes’). The slides go on to describe that these changes can also be categorized as ‘welcome’ or ‘unwelcome.’ The lesson slides conclude with listing five tools that you can use to help handle changes. I would recommend having a list of change examples that are relevant for your students prior to beginning this lesson sequence.”
