Fruit salad

Why not make a fruit salad with your learner! There will be opportunities for requests (mand) different fruits, actions (cut, open, etc.) resources (mand 1M-5M). You can talk about colours, shapes, foods and fruits and healthy vs unhealthy. You can receptively identify (give me the fruit that is yellow (LRFFC 10b)) or label (tact) the colours, “What colour is the banana?” (tact 10d). Conversational skill surrounding the fruit has many possibilities. “What fruit do you like?” (IV* 12g) “Where do you buy fruit?” (IV* 11b). Holding a conversation is an important skill (IV* 13h) Endless opportunities for language and learning and also the added benefit of hand eye co-ordination, motor skills and self-help skills.

Preceding skills reference to the VB-MAPP Assessment tool:
