Our Visual Programs Use Colour Coded Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons to assist those learners who are unable to distinguish between sizes. They can be found in the Able2learn Shop.
Cooking is important to learn independent daily living skills, vocational skills in culinary, reading, social skills, speech development, auditory processing, following directions, sequencing, and learning fine motor skills.
Many children including those with Autism and other developmental disabilities are visual learners. Based on numerous studies, research shows skills can be maintained when children learn through visuals in a fun and interactive environment. Our visual recipes are evidence based and will provide a foundation for your child to learn necessary independent skills that are important in life. Many school programs do not look at teaching functional skills for independence. Able2learn's visual recipes can be found in three different levels attempts to fill this gap.
Our visual recipes come with a literacy component intended to help those children who require to work on language and literacy skills. Able2learn understands parents are busy and the cost of therapists can be expensive. In our recipes, we have included a data sheet already completed for parents and teachers to use.
Did you know adults living with ASD have shockingly low independent living skills with less than 5% living on their own. 45% require 24 hour care and live with their aging parents. Less than 10% have necessary independent day-to-day household skills such as laundry, chores, and meal preparation. Our program attempts to address these staggering statistics.
From our family to yours, we encourage learning and hope you enjoy these materials. I want to see all of our children reach their best potential.

This was a fantastic activity for my students! The visual supports that came with this recipe were amazing. I so appreciate the work that went into putting this package together and I am very excited to make more delicious recipes with my students (I teach in a self-contained classroom with students on the ASD spectrum).

I happened upon this website while looking for cooking activities for my 15 year old daughter with autism. I was excited to see so many choices for cooking activities that are easy to navigate.
I loved the next dollar up evals at the end. I also loved how nicely broken up the recipe is, Would do again!.
