Scripted Play Companions
This set of scripts will help you to teach your students to engage in play in a natural and fun atmosphere.
Many of our students benefit from visuals, so why not use visuals to teach play skills?!? That’s the idea behind this scripted set.
An adult models the play task by using a visual support that is carefully disguised as part of the play (Doctor’s notes, Parent’s To-Do List, etc).
When it’s the student’s turn they have the same visual support available to them. They simply check off the tasks as they go!
Visual supports mean less prompting and more INDEPENDENCE! Oh, and the visual supports are also paired with core vocabulary phrases appropriate for each play task. Let’s get them talking! Let’s get them playing!
We can all agree that teaching play skills is SOOO important. But why does it have to be so hard? Well . . . NOW IT DOESN’T have to be!!!

What Other Special Educators Are Saying About Us
- Nicole D.
Once again the girls at AdaptEd 4 Special Ed have knocked it out of the park. These products can be used for all of my students despite the varied skill levels as they are easily adapted for different skill sets. I just love these products. My special education teachers have even started asking about where to find them.

I love how students can practice their personal information in such a fun and exciting way! This is a must have for every low incidence classroom! This has inspired me to add this as an IEP goal for my young low incidence students.

Your asking questions packets are genius. This is such a hard skill and I am super excited to print these packs (I bought a few!) to add to my classroom. Thank you for the clever products!

These books have been so helpful with my students with special needs. They take me a while to make - but so worth it. The topics are great - useful and relevant. Thank you!
