Getting Started With Centers – The Autism Helper

Start Easy.

Centers are a great time to work on skills, but as you are getting started, consider starting with previously mastered skills. This frees you up to work on social interactions, transitions, and establish routines without worrying about teaching a skill. Find a low prep, preferred task that students are excited to do and start there. Once procedures, routines and transitions are smooth you can add in tasks that work on emerging skills.

Don’t Over Think It. Don’t Over Plan It.

Centers do NOT have to be elaborate to be functional. In fact, it should be one of the fastest things you plan for! Pick a skill, pick how you will practice the skill and run with it! If it takes more than 5 minutes to set up, you won’t do it, so make sure your prep is easy. Your students do not care if things are Pintrest and Instagram perfect. Below I used some fake leaves for a sorting and sensory center and a fall coloring page for a center. Easy set up, easy prep and very little explaining to staff what to do and how to run the center.
