Joint action routines (JARs) are routine activities which are designed to encourage communication skills in children with autism.
JARs consist of interactions between two or more people, which follow a predictable and logical sequence of events, which use the same form of words each time, and which are repeated on a regular basis.
For example, a parent and child may use exactly the same form of words when the child is getting ready for bed. By doing so, the child is encouraged to learn the ‘script’ for what he or she is supposed to say and do at bedtime.
