Wait Card

Waiting is a very abstract concept for individuals on the autism spectrum and often difficult for a student with ASD to understand. How long do I wait? Where do I wait? These are just a few of the many questions associated with waiting. A wait card provides a method for visually teaching the concept of waiting. The card can be held by the child while waiting for a turn, waiting in line to leave for recess, or can be placed on the item of interest while the child is required to wait for that item.
