A choice board is a visual representation of items/activities that are available for an individual to choose from.  This tool is used to encourage communication, provide a visual reminder of what activities are available, and to encourage independent decision making throughout the day. The use of choice boards may increase your child’s motivation by providing them options for preferred activities or for which activity comes next. Offering a choice before an activity/task begins may increase participation and decrease the possibility of your child engaging in challenging behaviours

Examples of different choice boards you may use:

  • Preferred items (tablet, toys, sensory bins)
  • Food items (cookie, crackers, candy)
  • Activities (arts and crafts, colouring, books, lego)
  • Outings (science Centre, dollar store, park)
