I have been working in ABA autism education in Japan for over 10 years.

I started selling a picture book called Circle, Square, Triangle on Amazon!

It’s a picture book without words.

Supporters use a variety of readings when the child is studying.

The video below is a sample.

Circle, Square, Triangle(Learning & Education Children’s Picture BooksーABA Autism Education)

What is the mainstream ABA education for children with developmental disabilities in your country?

I have the image of EIBI mainly using DTT(Discrete Trial Teaching).

I have an image of NBI as having PRT, ESDM, JASPER, etc.

I would like this picture book to be used in DTT’s Reception and Expression task.

How do we use picture books?

En Sensei

For example, show the child a red circle.

And “what color?” I ask.

The child may then say “Circle” and make a mistake.

I asked for the color, but the child answers with the shape.

I have had this experience teaching children.

How about you guys?

In the Expression task, for example, we show a “red circle” and ask, “What color is it?” or “What is its shape?” and answer correctly.

Prompt when a child makes a mistake.

For example, show them a “red circle” and ask, “What color?” I asked.

What if a child says “square”?

Teach them, “red.”

“What is its shape?”I asked.

What if a child says “red”?

Teach them, “square.”

En Sensei

What if you could predict before the task that the child would make a mistake?

What if the child will probably ask for the “color” but answer for the “shape”?

Ask a question and immediately give a hint(prompt) of the answer.

The supporter gradually goes with fewer and fewer hints(prompt).

This process is known as prompt fading.

Let’s also look at an example of an Reception task.

There are several pages in the picture book with three item: “circle,” “square,” and “triangle”.

The supporter includes both “color” and “shape” elements in the instructions, and the child selects the yellow triangle.

En Sensei

For example, use a page in a picture book that depicts one item.

For example, use “red circles”.

For example, generalization task can be done using picture cards.

You can download the PDF from the URL page.

Free downloads are available.

It is also a good idea to use picture books as a generalization task after practicing with picture card materials.
