This lesson was designed for students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to make associations between the environmental triggers in that exist throughout their day and the physiological responses that happen within. Prolonged exposure to these triggers can result in problematic behaviors which can cause negative consequences. These step ladders were extremely successful in helping students to recognize how they were feeling and what was causing them to feel this way in order to prevent problematic behaviors from happening. This should be used in conjunction with other strategies and interventions such as daily social skills instruction, visual supports, cue cards, etc. I’ve done this lesson for students with behavioral disorders that were not ASD and found it to be successful as well. I developed a basic step ladder that I used when working in with students on the spectrum at the elementary level. A Digital version is attached as well so modifications can be made accordingly. This strategy can be used in all grade levels and subject areas.
