What is a Visual Schedule?

What are they?  Simply put, visual schedules use pictures to communicate a sequence of events to a child.  They can be used to display everything from a bedtime routine, to a to-do list, to a weekly schedule of extracurricular activities and chores.   They are frequently seen in classrooms as a proven path to behavioral success often starting in preschool and continuing through through elementary ages.  Some children may use them longer; such as kids with diagnosis ADHD, Aspergers, Autism, NVLD, and other diagnoses.

What do they do?  Visual Schedules are positive behavioral supports that seek to improve a child’s behavior.  Many parents struggle with effective verbal communication with their child.  They deal with tantrums, forgetfulness, and having to guide a child through routines that they feel their child should perhaps already know.  While these are all normal challenges to have with children, any parent is going to be happy to minimize them.  Additionally, some children can have additional challenges in the focus, task execution and transition parts of daily life.  Visual schedules give children the reinforcement they need to do a better job at recalling, anticipating and accepting what’s ahead. They also give kids time to process and organize things in their mind on a concrete level.  When a child is given these extra tools, overall behavior is improved because they deal better with the tasks at hand.

Visual Schedules at School

Visual Schedules are very popular in classrooms and day cares. SchKIDules offers both individual sized magnets and displays for a single child as well as larger sizes for group use. If you home school, this is a great organizational tool to visually communicate the schedule/topics for the day. Our school-themed magnets include all the usual school subjects and events you’d expect to experience in a typical school week..  If you need to go step further, we also offer a “Specials” Collection that when paired with the school collection, creates a great special education set.

Visual Schedules for Autism, ADHD and other Diagnoses

Visual Schedules are especially helpful if your child has a diagnosis like Autism, Aspergers, or even ADHD. Visuals can help with positive reinforcement, cognitive clarity, receptive and expressive communication and redirection. Psychologically, visual schedules can even lower anxiety and improve confidence. Children feel more secure in the world when they can accurately anticipate what will happen next. Without this, they can feel anxious and be prone to acting out when something unpredictable occurs. SchKIDules have been known to alter behavior so successfully that parents feel they have a whole new child on their hands.
