Specifically, effective structured work systems help learners, and later workers, focus on what needs to be completed, how much work is involved, how to know when the work is finished and what has to be done next, and as such, they play a critical role in helping to maintain skills and moving toward independence. Structured work systems have proven to be essential in practicing and mastering skills in the areas of fine-motor, cognition-preacademics, language concepts, constructive play, academics (reading, math and writing) and vocational tasks.
“Structured work systems are critical for many individuals with autism spectrum and related disorders at school, home and in the community. Reeve and Kabot offer a clear description and practical guidelines for implementing structured work systems from assessment through progress monitoring. The structured work systems and specific activity examples provide a starting point for developing and organizing tasks that the reader can then build upon. The text is especially beneficial for beginning teachers and individuals new to working with students with ASD or to implementing structured work systems.” – Chris Carnahan, EdD, assistant professor, University of Cincinnati; co-author of Quality Literary Instruction for Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders – Winner of the Textbook Excellence Award “Texty” (2011)
