Students with autism can really benefit from using a visual schedule at home and school. The pieces that you get are geared towards activities that they student will do during the day at school. I've included pictures and words on the pieces to assist the emergent reader in better understanding their schedule. I've also included a basic name plate that can be used to write the child's name on. The pieces in this schedule include small group work, storytime, teacher time, and sensory break (just to name a few)
After printing out all 4 pages, please laminate them. The schedule pieces can be set-up in a top-down or left-right fashion. You will need to buy a plastic folder or laminate a schedule board. Place loop Velcro on the board and hood Velcro on the pieces. Use an envelope or plastic container as a "done" area. After the child is finished with the activity, they should pull off the piece and place it in "done". When I am first teaching this to the child, I will only place 2-3 pictures on the board. You don't want to overwhelm the child when first teaching how to use the board.
I've also included an "I am working for" token economy chart for use with the student. There are spaces for the student to earn up to 5 stars to work for their preferred activity. Cut out the stars and place Velcro on the back of the stars. Place the opposite type of Velcro on the chart.
