  • 2. Building blocks: This is an activity that I observed while on placement at Hamilton North School. I spent time with the Occupational Therapist as she assessed some children. The aim was to test the student’s ability to stack building blocks into a tower as well as emulate the OT’s model shape/pattern. The expectation was for the seven year old autistic student to be able to copy the shapes and patterns perfectly as well as stack at least twelve blocks
  • 3. Building a tower: Though the tower was wobbly, the student understood the instructions and was able to carry out this task with prompting. This image shows a child participating and doing this activity. In doing, he is engaging in meaningful occupation. (PLAY)
  • 4. Copying patterns and shapes: Giving instructions to build a tower
  • 5. Copying patterns and shapes: Following instructions
  • 6. Copying patterns and shapes: Successfully completed task of building a tower exactly like model
  • 7. Copying patterns and shapes: Giving instructions
  • 8. Copying patterns and shapes: Selecting appropriate blocks
  • 9. Copying patterns and shapes: Watching for instructions
  • 10. Copying patterns and shapes: Correcting choice of block colour
  • 11. Copying patterns and shapes: Watching for instructions
  • 12. Copying patterns and shapes: Repositioning block to emulate model shape/ pattern
  • 13. Copying patterns and shapes: Selecting appropriate block
  • 14. Copying patterns and shapes: Completing task by successfully copying model shape/pattern
  • 15. Ethical considerations: In preparing this PowerPoint, I had help from a friend who modelled as the student in this scenario. I made sure that I had her permission to make use of her hands for class purposes.
  • 16. Ethical considerations: In preparing this PowerPoint, I also made an effort to reference the work that I retrieved, whether it was from the internet (photos) or readings.
  • 17. Ethical considerations: In preparing this PowerPoint, I took the safety and privacy of the people in the photos into consideration and either blurred their faces or made sure they were not recognisable.
