Updated by: Kristie Lofland, M.S., CCC-A
It is the beginning of the school year and each new academic year presents new challenges. Opening a combination lock or a locker can be a very challenging experience. To help your son, daughter or student with this task, here are some resources on how to use a combination lock and/or locker.
wikiHow to do anything is a great site that will supply both pictures and text for two methods of opening your locker when you know and when you don’t know your padlock’s combination. This site will also link you to how-to videos and community questions and answers.

On the www.bing.com site there are several different videos showing various types of locks and lockers so you can choose the one your student may be most familiar with or may be in their school.
Again, using wikiHow to do anything, you will find both text and pictures giving idea on how to remember a new locker combination.
Written by a student, these step by step written instructions will teach how to operate a combination lock and give some tips and warnings.
For students with motor planning problems or fine motor delays, using a lock or a locker can be quite a challenge. This article gives you tips to consider for helping your child handle the locker challenge.
