Adrienne’s Programming Toolbox: Spring Targets

with No Comments

Welcome to Spring!

Don’t forget to select targets based on what is relevant and meaningful to the child/family. Find out what is in their yard or their garden to personalize the experience even more. When teaching, make sure to include life-size or actual examples, miniatures, color photographs, black and white photos, animated pictures, clip art, and images in books. The more exemplars the better!

This list is not all inclusive! Use it as a “spring” board for developing targets that are meaningful to your learners.

Next week- Wh questions that build off this list!

Adrienne Fitzer, MA, BCBA developed this list for individuals to use when teaching students about items you use or see in yards or gardens during the season of spring.. This list is not appropriate for all learners and care should be taken to eliminate targets that do not appear in the learner’s environment. For example, a garden in Florida may not include cold weather crops and a garden in New Jersey will not include avocados. Yards in urban areas may have stone or concrete patios, and no grass. Large yards in suburban areas may not have chain link fences (or any fences for that matter) but have a ride on tractor, dog house, and a river running near by with a dock.
