In this document are visuals which can be utilized to create an individualized daily schedule for students with autism/auditory processing disorders within the classroom.
An individualized visual schedule helps students diagnosed with autism as:
It utilizes the individual’s visual strengths and therefore provides a receptive communication system to increase understanding;
It helps the individual to learn new things and broaden their interests;
It provides tools that allow the individual to use skills in a variety of settings;
It can increase the individual’s flexibility;
It helps the individual remain calm and reduces inappropriate behaviors; and
It helps the individual to develop independence and resulting self-esteem.
