At home we would use this for tasks such as eating. e.g. you must have two slices of toast; you should have two slices of toast plus an orange juice; you could have two slices of toast plus an orange juice and an egg.
Or for getting ready

You must complete 3 sentences.
You should complete 5 sentences.
You could complete 5 sentences and complete a wordsearch.

We are clearly doing something right. A relative is in the hospital ill and has seen a need for visual supports there.
You could use these symbols to make a visual to show what to do first and next when having breakfast or lunch. Cut out symbols and arrange in a sequence to support a full routine.
