Daily Living Skills

Many individuals with special needs benefit from picture cards to teach daily living skills because they have trouble processing verbally delivered information, initiating activities, staying focused, and completing every step within a task.  Picture cards can promote accurate and independent completion of daily living activities and thus enhance the individual’s overarching quality of life.  Daily living picture cards can also be integrated into story strips, functional communication systems, and visual schedules.
