STORY:  How Make-in-No-Time Tasks came to be...

How Make-in-No-Time Tasks came to be...

Autism tasks, autism activities, autism education materials, TEACCH oriented, photo example
To put this simply, faced with students with autism or other learning styles that are "hands-on," you need tools that are very different from traditional learning materials. Whether a teacher or a parent, you come to this conclusion fairly quickly. Creating the tools that work takes much time and much work, and time for all is in short supply. Working with teachers and parents over the years it became obvious that so many were independently "reinventing the wheel" in coming up with well-designed tasks that were directly suited for the purpose. Our goal was to provide these valuable products as a service in an efficient and very cost-effective manner. Our company was born and our development of added tools continues, as well as the feedback that "this is such a valuable service."

Narrative Biography ~ Sloane Burgess:


Sloane Burgess
has a Ph.D. in Communication Disorders from the Department of Communication Disorders at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. She earned her Masters of Social Work (MSW) degree at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She worked as a Psychoeducational Specialist for the TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication Handicapped Children) program in North Carolina for approximately 10 years before returning to school to complete her doctoral degree. In her role as a TEACCH Psychoeducational Specialist, she served as a member of a diagnostic team, and provided consultation and training to teachers and other professionals involved in the education and training of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). She has provided training specific to educational strategies for students with ASD in many states and several countries. Sloane also taught preschool aged children with autism spectrum disorders, developed a Preschool Curriculum Guide, and collaborated with a colleague to develop a model demonstration classroom for preschool aged children with ASD in Western North Carolina. She has worked extensively with individuals with ASD of all ages and levels of ability, both individually and in small support group models, as well as with their families.


Since moving to Ohio from North Carolina, Sloane has continued to work with individuals with ASD and their families. She has consulted with many local school districts and Special Education Regional Resource Centers (SERRC) to provide educational support to individuals with autism spectrum disorders. She has also continued to provide training to professionals and parents specific to educational strategies for students with ASD. Her responsibilities have included consulting to teachers, providing diagnostic and developmental evaluations, and leading parent support groups. Her doctoral dissertation is an investigation into the relationship between social understanding and quality of life in adolescents with High Functioning Autism (HFA) or Asperger’s Syndrome.


Sloane is a member of the Autism Society of America, Autism Society of North Carolina, and the National Association of Social Workers. She won the first annual Schopler Award, an honor granted from the Autism Society of North Carolina recognizing outstanding achievement for a TEACCH Psychoeducational Specialist. She is a contributing author to The TEACCH Approach to Autism Spectrum Disorders by Gary B. Mesibov, Victoria Shea, and Eric Schopler (2005). Although Sloane has focused extensively on TEACCH methodology, she has been trained in, and uses many other educational strategies developed for individuals with ASD, including Greenspan’s DIR model, Carol Gray’s Social Stories, Comic Strip Conversations, and principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA.)

Noreen Flannery
has her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and Masters in Education from Kent State University. She has worked as an early childhood educator for 22 years in Geauga and Cuyahoga Counties.  She has been trained in methodologies, diagnostics and strategies for identifying and educating individuals with autism including TEACCH, Greenspan’s DIR model, Carol Gray’s Social Stories, PEP-R, ADOS, the Ziggurat Model, assistive technology and LAMP (Language Acquisition through Motor Planning). She has been trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) through the Cleveland Clinic’s Autism program in order to provide classroom based and home based discrete trial training for her students. Her primary focus has been on the TEACCH methodology where she is a Certified Trainer for Division TEACCH teams and a member of teams training in Ohio, North Carolina, and Ireland.


Currently she provides services for the Achievement Centers for Children in Cleveland, Ohio through the Cuyahoga County Educational Service Center. During the school year she teaches in an early childhood classroom designed specifically for students with autism, provides training for staff in structured teaching and incorporating assistive technology into the classroom. In the summer she works as lead teacher in TEACCH trainings throughout Northeast Ohio and manages to carve out time in between to create new activities for “Make In No Time Tasks” and her own artwork.

"Both my morning and afternoon classes consist of students with autism. Creating and making tasks is practically my life!  I have spent countless hours shopping and searching for good materials to make tasks that are interesting and meaningful to my students.  I was so happy and just ecstatic when I heard about “Make in No Time Tasks.”  It is EXACTLY what I was looking for!" 

"I am continually amazed at the awesome materials provided in each box for the different tasks!  They’re bright, colorful, sturdy, neat, precise, and unique!  The fact that I can get anywhere from 8 to 16 tasks in one box for the price of what one pre-made task costs elsewhere…helps me..."  

"I love having everything I need all in one box…providing lamination and a shoebox or container here and there is easy!  ...makes it easy to pass along to paraprofessionals and parent volunteers to make." 

"The tasks also align with my curriculum, student IEP goals, and state standards!  I highly recommend these products to teachers, parents, and therapists all over."
