MODULE: Structured Work Systems

How Can Work Systems Be Adapted To Meet Individual Needs In Many Environments?

Though all work systems use visual cues to indicate what to do first, next, and last, these systems must be developed to meet the unique needs of each individual.  Structured work systems can have simple or complex designs as long as the design aligns with the skills and attributes of the individuals using them. The design of an individual work system for an individual who does not yet read or write will be different from the design of a work system for someone who is able to read and comprehend written directions. Similarly, if an individual is able to travel from one area to another without adult support, his or her work system will look different from a work system designed for an individual who has trouble moving from one area to another.
