Students with special needs need to be involved in making choices. Choices give students control over some aspects of their daily life. Understanding that there are choices and knowing how to make choices can be a life time skill that can be used across environments and activities.
Choices can be offered in a variety of activities including singing, outside play, cooking and fine motor activities. Students need to learn that there are different choices for different activities. Students also need to understand and accept that they can only make a choice from the options presented.
