Two head teachers went to an Autism conference over the summer and learned about a whole class picture schedule that they could purchase. Instead of them purchasing an expensive product, they asked me to make one for them because I have my degree in special education and they know I am good with computers. It is proven to help students, especially with Autism, lesson their anxiety and feel in more in control because they knew what was coming. This also tells the students how many things they have to get through in order to get to the activity they are looking forward to because it’s a special class, a recess, or maybe just a class they are good at. The combination of pictures and words help the students who cannot read very well to understand what is coming next. It is also a good idea to verbally explain the schedule each day because this will help verbal and visual learners.
How to put together and use:
I printed the subject/activity cards on card stock paper, laminated them, and cut them out. I also printed the arrow on card stock, laminated it, cut it out, and hot glued it to a clothes pin. Then I cut a poster board long ways and taped the halves together long ways. After that, I hung the poster board on the corner of the chalk board. I use sticky tack to stick the cards on the poster board in order every day. I move the arrow down the poster as we switch subjects/activities. I put the cards up in the morning to lunch and then after lunch I put up the rest. The students really like knowing what is coming whether they have a disability or not! You can find pictures of schedules in use in my two classrooms in the preview and on the cover page.
