Autism & PDD More Picture Stories & Language Activities 5-Program Set

Wildly popular Matt & Molly share their lighthearted escapades in four-part stories that let students choose the ending!  The programs target fundamental language skills such as question-answering, sequencing, inferring, and more.      

Each program in the 5-program set has eight stories that focus on one question form: who, what, where, when, or why.  A wh- question is posed in each story, giving students a choice between two different story endings.  The format builds anticipation and lets children determine and participate in the story's outcome.   Each story is a launch pad for interactive language activities in:

  • sequencing
  • inferring, predicting, and reasoning
  • wh- questions
  • narrative language and descriptive language
  • literacy and text comprehension
  • parts of speech
    - nouns
    - verbs
    - pronouns
    - adjectives
    - adverbs
    - prepositions
    - conjunctions
    - interjections

The Autism & PDD More Picture Stories & Language Activities 5-program set has materials and lesson plans for 40 stories and includes:

  • 200 sturdy, full-color 8½" x 11" sequence pictures (five for each story)
  • 240 large-print sentence strips per story (six for each story)
  • a teacher manual with:
    - two-day lesson plans for each story
    - take-home page with mini-story pictures for each story
    - teaching techniques and adaptations for nonverbal children 
    - progress chart

You can easily adapt the lessons and materials to meet the needs of individuals, small groups, or an entire class.  The lessons are infused with teaching techniques especially for children with autism and PDD.  The activities include:    

  • describing the people, places, and things in the story pictures
  • learning new vocabulary concepts
  • predicting the next event in the story
  • answering a wh- question and choosing the story ending
  • retelling the story
  • identifying the missing picture
  • matching sentence strips to pictures
