Teach Me with Pictures is a new visual learning programme for children aged 3 to 10 years old. The 40 picture scripts help children with autism spectrum disorders gain key communication and play skills.

Five Reasons Why Picture Scripts Work:Griffin - Teach Me with Pictures - pgs21-25 and 36-40 - extract colour-12

  •    Pictures appeal to the visual strengths of children with autism.
  •    Breaking down activities into small steps makes them achievable.
  •    Picture scripts show the child exactly what to do. This gives confidence to children with autism by making the activities more predictable.
  •    The language in the scripts is simple and consistent. Whoever carries out the activity  with the child says the same words, making it easier for the child.
  •    Picture scripts act as a memory aid, increasing independence.

The picture scripts cover a range of topics including drawing, cooking and pretend play. Tasks are illustrated in manageable step-by-step sequences and support the development of the child’s independence as well as other skills including following instructions and making choices.

The resource is designed to be accessible to all and can be used by teachers, professionals or parents. The scripts can be photocopied from the book or printed from the CD-ROM (in colour or black and white)

One thought

  1. your article is nice. I HAVE A kid who is diagnosed with high functioning autism .He cannot read written scripts.
    Can you suggest me some way to make scripts for conversation between two peers. For example ” I am playing with blocks” in response to a question made by peer “what are you doing”.
    I will be grateful for your help.
