Step by Step Cooking

Cooking is an amazing life skill and one that can bring independence. For students that requires additional support to learn new skills here are a few ideas on how to teach basic cooking skills. Begin with basics such as toast, mac & cheese, quesadilla, (make sure it is something the individual will want to eat). With a camera take pictures of each step involved. For example if I were teaching quesadilla I would take a picture the fridge, cheese, tortilla, plate, cheese on the tortilla, microwave, amount of time on the microwave, and then eating the quesadilla. These pictures then serve as the prompt for cooking simple things. A little independence helps with self esteem and also helps the caregivers. There are places where you can purchase picture cookbooks. This is an excellent place to buy items that work on functional life skills that can be worked on in the classroom and at home.
