Autism and PDD: Answering Questions 2 Book Set

Ages: 3-9
Grades: PreK-4

Bridge the gap between concrete and abstract language with these books that use highly-visual content to help children picture the concepts behind challenging question forms like "what if" and "what should."

Simple illustrations help students understand the logic behind questions and respond appropriately. Students look at the picture, read the question or statement at the top of the page, and respond. The complexity of response can range from single-word answers to complex utterances. Instructions and goals are included to help you fade cues and progress to generalization of the question concepts.

Autism & PDD–Answering Questions, Level 2 is a continuation of Autism & PDD–Answering Questions, Level 1 with a subtle progression in content and detail of the pictures. Both books have eight chapters covering:

  • Describing Feelings—Students answer the question "How does he/she feel?" and identify emotions of hurt, mad, sad, happy, and scared.
  • What Happened—Students answer the question, "What happened?" and explain situations like spilling a drink or a bee sting.
  • What Do You Do When—Students draw from personal experiences or the experiences of others and answer "What do you do when" questions in novel, yet logical ways.
  • Why/Because—Students give logical answers to questions such as "Why is she taking her medicine?" and "Why do people use paper plates?"
  • Going To—Students express predictions and draw conclusions as they answer questions that pertain to related objects such as "Hannah has a rake and a big black bag. What is she going to do?"
  • What Do You Need—Students name two items needed to complete tasks like washing hands or making a birthday card. Simple organizational skills like verbal sequencing and basic storytelling are developed.
  • What Should—Students demonstrate beginning logic and problem-solving skills by stating solutions to simple problems like what to do if a glass breaks (e.g., "John broke a glass. What should he do?").
  • What If—Students hypothesize about events they may not have experienced themselves (e.g., "What happens if you step on gum?")
