Free Visual Support:Red Light / Green Light (PDF)
Red Light / Green Light is a popular playground game for children of all ages. The visual supports included in this download are designed to help children play with their peers successfully. For children who are ready to understand the symbolic nature of the game and comprehend simple sentences, the first two pages of the support are designed to impart the rules of the game according to imaginary roles. For children with more limited language and play abilities – simply using the final support, the actual “stop light,” along with peer models may facilitate their participation. The “stop light” is designed to be printed out, folded in half and laminated. Either the child who is the “stop light” or an assistant can flip the card to show the “green light” or “red light” according to the child pretending to be the stop light’s directions. The video tutorial describes the use of the three visual supports included in the download, as well as a simple variation on the classic game.
