Different ways to present a choice

There are several ways to present choice-making options:

    • verbal choices (no visual aids)

Simply say the options out loud: “Would you like juice or milk?”

    • auditory cues

Play a sound that represents each option as you say it:

“Would you like the tambourine or the shakers?”

è Play each instrument after saying its name.

    • real objects

Show the options to the person who is choosing by holding them out in front of them:

“Would you like juice or milk?”

    • photographs

apple juice  glass of milk

    • line-drawn (i.e. Mayer-Johnson/Boardmaker) symbols
