More Wordless Wednesday
What a great idea, particularly for children on the autism spectrum or who struggle with reading directions.
I work with developmentally disabled adults, and I have to tell you — the people who have had parents and mentors work with them with tools like this wordless cookbook felt so much better about themselves and are so much happier. It gives them a real and extremely important sense of accomplishment and worth!
Even for those of us with a high reading level, I appreciate photo step by steps for stuff that Mom never taught me!
What a great idea! Even if you have kids who aren’t developmentally challenged, it’s a great tool for showing toddlers step-by-step directions for preparing food. My kids loved to help in the kitchen when they were little, and something like this would have been fantastic to have on hand.
