It is impossible to find resources for every unique special interest your students have… or is it? Special Interest resources allows you to plug in” any 5 images of your choice (from google or your computer) and customize to ANY special interest! You will be amazed at how engaged your students are once they see their favorite characters, family members, or objects move around these no-print scenes. This resource makes it much easier to keep your students engaged in your session! Designed with Autistic students in mind but works perfectly for a huge range of students!



 This resource is in the ever-growing Special Interest Resource Line! Check out the other goals you can target with these resources, such as spatial concepts!

 Please Read Before Purchasing 

  • It is strongly recommended that you open this resource in Adobe Acrobat to ensure it works properly. The link to download it for free is included on the instruction page in the resource.
  • If for any reason you need help trouble-shooting, visiting this FAQ will be the quickest way to get you up and running!
  • Some devices (tablets in particular) seem to have difficulty with the navigation arrows. If this is the case, you may need to scroll to the next page or use keyboard arrows. I am working on a solution for this. You can always check back in your “my purchases” for updates to any TpT purchase. I will also announce updates/notices to re-download to my waitlist and Instagram stories. You should not have this issue on a laptop if you are using the most up-to-date version of Adobe Acrobat.
  • This download does not include any sets of images for you to input. You will need to use images from your own device. They may be any jpeg or png file that you have made/taken yourself or found on the internet. Please also note that some people report that png works best.
