Polka Dot Preschool-Elementary Autism Classroom Visual Bundle

This set of visual supports has what you need to set up your special education classroom for students with autism or other disabilities and make it visually attractive and bright with colorful polka dot patterns. This set contains the basic visual setup needed for a classroom of up to 15 students including picture schedules, written schedules, visual cueing for receptive language, classroom rules, and classroom jobs.

These visuals are also available in other patterns and in sets for middle and high school. >Thematic Visual Bundles (Schedules)

Included in this set are:
Individual Picture Schedules in 15 Colored Tone-on-Tone Polka Dot Patterns
In each schedule, there are 72 picture cards corresponding to common activities for classrooms serving students with special needs. Each student has an assigned color and there are 15 color possibilities. The color helps the student to identify which schedule is his or hers. There are several activities that are represented by multiple pictures. For instance, everyone’s morning meeting may look different. Young students might be on the floor, while older students would be at a table. Some classrooms use whiteboards or interactive whiteboards, while others just have a teacher at the front of the group.

70 Group Schedule Icons / Check-In Schedule Icons
There is a group schedule icon for each picture on the individual picture schedules. In addition, there are 2 group schedule icons that represent center-times when students are all engaged in different activities so that they can be represented as “centers” on the group schedule. All the group and check-in visuals are bordered in black and white polka dots.

62 Individual Written Word Icons in 3 Colors
These are designed for students who do not need the pictures and are able to read and comprehend the words for the activities. Typically there are fewer students who are able to use a schedule independently with just words, so I only included 3 colors.

26 classroom jobs with 4 blank cards
Most of the jobs have 2 title options: one is a real-world job (e.g., electrician) and one is a traditional helper job (e.g., light helper). A title graphic for the job board is also included. There is one set with title and cards in black and white polka dot and one in multicolored polka dot for you to choose.

Classroom Rules
I have given you several options for classroom rules. There are 2 single-page rules that are easily portable. These are in multi-color polka dots. In addition, the visual cues from the cueing belts match the rules so the students will be familiar with them.

I also made a set with a page for each rule. There are black and white polka dot versions and multicolor polka dot versions. This will allow you to make a bulletin board display with them and to choose which rules will work best for your class.

First-Then Board
12 Visuals for a visual cueing lanyard for redirection
3 mini/task schedules—handwashing, arrival routine, bathroom (in two polka dot pattern borders
Stop signs for doors and limit setting
