Snack: Building Picture Understanding

I am working with a child to build understanding of 2D photographs. I first needed to make sure he visually recognized the 4 target items in 3D.  Since he could prove solid visual understanding of the 3D items for snack (he had used these for 2 years, everyday in snack so they were familiar).  The strategy we developed used exact photographs of these familiar items.  He struggles with increased display of too many materials presented at once so his speech therapist created this flip board so each one can be displayed individually.  Notice the addition of the favorite yellow strip to indicate where to grab.  This flip board is his organizational schedule so he can gather the materials he needs for his snack everyday to build increased independence.
