Not everyone loves oatmeal, and the texture maybe gritty on your student. As a mom I love oatmeal. In the mornings when I make breakfast, I love when Niam enters the kitchen and starts to make Oatmeal for me. This is a simple recipe but can introduce your child to no cook cooking. 

I look forward to the day when he may take a little sip. 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 knows how to cook many recipes and not all are foods he enjoys, but it is equally 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.  

This recipe can be used to teach all about stove top cooking including safety.

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.

Leave some feedback and tell us how you used the recipes.

    This has everything included, shopping list, visual steps, comprehension questions, it's wonderful! Only drawback for me is I'm in the US so unfortunatly, the grocery planning/money part is not applicable, but the rest of the material included in this makes it worth it!
    Thank you for a great resource!
