Creating Meaningful Outcomes for ALL Students

Creating Employment TASK Work Stations

Wouldn't it be great if students could practice the necessary work skills in a safe, classroom environment in order to become masters? Now they can! Look around for unused space in your building. Maybe the sensory room has a spot? Maybe a back corner of a classroom? Maybe there is some free space in your SSC area. You find the space and I can help you with the development! Begin by thinking of four types of employment skills that you can tackle easily by making TASKS: folding silverware, folding pizza boxes, folding doughnut boxes, and stacking sugars to name a few. These are all meaningful skills that our students can transfer over to real life employment. Check out the pictures below!
