Good morning 🌞
Today I want to share about our daily schedule. Children with Autism do extremely well with visual schedules. I know it helps Chloe move through her day much better.
There are many types of visual schedules you can use. The one above is a Velcro wall schedule. You use pec (picture) cards and make the schedule. They can pull off each activitiy as they complete it.
I have also used index cards and wrote an activity on each card. Then I attached a book ring. Chloe would flip through each card, complete the activitiy, then flip to the next card. She liked this one, but would sometimes skip cards she didn’t like. Lol. Chloe has reached an age where she gets upset about certain activities and refuses to do them.
That’s where this comes in handy. I use this on days she is being more stubborn about doing her activities. It works very well. Thank you to her teacher for making one of these, plus a whole binder of visual schedules for us.
This is what is working for us right now. I write out her schedule…this is her morning schedule…and as she completes each activitiy she erases it. She does the best with this one. That could change, as she gets bored and starts ignoring the board. That’s when I may go to the flip card schedule for awhile.
You just have to find a system that works for you and especially your child. Is every day perfect? No, but havi g a schedule does make it a bit easier. Right now Chloe is having playtime and then it’s school work time. After school work she gets her first teward ..PHONE TIME😀
So I hope this is helpful to someone out there. Do you use a schedule? If so, share what you use. Thanks for reading my blog today. Stay healthy out there🥰
