Learning to make a sandwich is a great cooking skill to teach your child. No cook recipes are great for classrooms and beginner cooking classes. There are many skills that can be learned from making a sandwich, sequencing, understanding where ingredients are kept in a kitchen, how to open bread packet and close it, spreading, have fun teaching and make sure the learning is fun.
A visual recipe does not have to be a favourite food for someone to learn how to cook it. This is a no cook picture recipe and can be used as part of a special education class, school education program, ABA, ABA therapy or autism cooking. My son is vegetarian, however we replace the lunch meat with veggie meat. It is important to teach your child or student to cook recipes that are not personal favourites. It is important to learn how to cook and to cook for others. There are many skills to be learned by our picture recipes. Let us know how you used them.
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.

I liked the pages that consisted of the visual directions. I could not use all the comprehension sheets with my student but the activity was good for following multistep directions.
