Picture communication system symbols paired with a task analysis were used in order to help increase the independence of task completion for students with severe cognitive impairments. This system pairs a picture symbol with each step of a task analysis to illustrate the steps that a student must go through in order to complete the task. Results of the study showed that the picture communication system symbols paired with a task analysis were rapidly successful for the students and significantly increased their percentage of independent task completion
