3. Equipment needed: letters of the alphabet on paper, pencils, a bag
4. First, you are going to get a blank square with no letters on it. Next, you are going to
pick 7 letters from the bag and lay them out in a line. After, you will have 2 minutes to
make a word with the following letters. Also, this is where you may use your blank
square and use it has a “fill-in” letter however you may only use it once. You do not
have to use every letter but the longer the word the more points you will get. After you
make your word, you will be read your word out to the class and you get one point for
every letter you used in your word. You will play 5 rounds of this. The purpose is not to
see who wins but to help with something like intellectual disabilities with something as
simple as spelling out words.
5. The primary interaction pattern would be Aggregate because this is an activity where
you are directing your attention to a specific object, in this case, the letters. However,
you are also doing it with people from around you will they are engaging in directing
their attention to their objects. Also, you are not performing this activity together or
interacting with each other so that is what makes it Aggregate.
6. The disability I chose to adapt this activity to was people with Autism Spectrum
Disorder. Autism is a disorder that impairs an individual to be able to interact in a social
setting and their ability to communicate. The adaptation I would do this activity would
be instead of doing this as an individual activity, split them into partners. Splitting them
into partners instead of smaller groups would allow them to socialize with one person to
figure out a word to create together. I would start with partners instead of several
people in a group because that could make them anxious. However, after every round, I
would have them switch partners so they get to interact with more than just one
person. Also, as they get more comfortable with talking to each other and working
together than possibly make the groups larger to either three or four once you see
progress with their socializing skills.
