Module 2, Lesson 2: Leveling
In the last few years, I’ve come to realize how helpful it is to organize the types of goals that I am working on. Creating levels is not a means of labeling or limiting students. It is a way of thinking about goals and activities. It makes lesson planning and homework ideas so much easier!
You can download the editable Google Sheet version of Super Organized Levels.
- Emergent communication 1 (pre-intentional, limited symbolic language)
- Emergent communication 2 (some cause/effect & joint attention; intentional but not conventional)
- Basic communication (One to three-word communication)
- Pre-K Language (Below Kindergarten CCSS)
- Language Level 1 (Kindergarten-1st grade CCSS)
- Language Level 2 (2nd-3rd grade CCSS)
- Language Level 3 (4th-5th grade CCSS)
- Language Level 4 (6th-8th grade CCSS)
- Articulation Level 1 (Pre-readers, earlier developing sounds)
- Articulation Level 2 (Readers, later developing sounds)
- Fluency Level 1 (New to fluency therapy)
- Fluency Level 2 (Seasoned fluency students)
- Social Skills Level 1 (Beginning perspective-taking)
- Social Skills Level 2 (Intermediate perspective-taking)
- Social Skills Level 3 (Advance social skills and nuances)
Here are examples of items that I’ve created with levels. Note that when the materials are leveled, I can do the same/similar activities with all of my students but make them appropriate to their goals.
- Assign a goal level for each student.
- Add that level to your caseload spreadsheet.
- Post in the community when you are done!
