The STAR Autism Sunshine Literacy Kit assists teachers with lesson plans, activities, data collection and educational games. Constructing the kit involved over 50 original illustrations and designing hundreds of printed materials. There are 10 total activities that require materials from the kit. Most of the activities required illustrations: 20 illustrations were converted for stencils, 19 illustrations were created for an activity which involves gluing macaroni on the artwork. Additional illustrations were created for the Bingo Cards and Teacher’s Manual. I designed and prepared 434 files intended to be used as flash cards. The flash cards show photographs, colors, shapes and words. Some of the material in the kit is provided on a cd to be printed by the teacher. On this CD, I created custom-built icons. All in all, the project resulted in over 1,000 files that are to be printed by the manufacturer or files that are provided on the compact disc that comes with the kit.
