How to Make a Visual Scale

Posted on August 5, 2016 at 1:24 AM
Visual scales are terrific tools for helping young people with executive function challenges to see and understand the subtleties of everyday life. Click here for a document with instructions on how to make a visual scale. And click here for a short YouTube video showing how to make a visual scale.

Visual scales can be used in a variety of ways: to show voice or noise levels, to communicate state of mind, to indicate physical health, or to show proximity. Visual scales work by showing the current level in relation to the desired level, and by tracking progress toward the desired level.

Have you successfully used visual scales with your students or children? If so, please share in the comments so that other readers can benefit from your experiences.
