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.  They deal with tantrums, forgetfulness, and having to repeat themselves often.  While these are all normal parenting challenges to some degree, some parents experience them more than others.  Additionally, some children also struggle with focus, task execution and transitions in their daily life.  Visual schedules give kids the visual reinforcement they need to do a better job in all these departments. They also give kids time to process and organize things in their mind on a concrete level.  When a child is provided with these extra tools for success, overall behavior is improved.

Who uses Visual Schedules?

Visual Schedules At Home

From routines to chores, SchKIDules can make life at home run much smoother. Need a little help with establishing and sticking to healthy daily routines? Have a “type A” child who frequently engages in power struggles? Want help introducing chores or a reward chart? How about organizing weekly activities? SchKIDules has home-themed activity magnets for all of the above! Our picture magnets serve as friendly reminders of what’s next or what’s expected. Kids love them and parents enjoy not having to repeat themselves as often.

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. 

Why Choose SchKIDules?

SchKIDules puts YOU in control of designing your own layout, because visual schedules mean different things to different people.   That’s why SchKIDules offers 4 different types of displays.  You may notice there are no lines, dots, columns or rows that define the space for you. You can put 2 things or 10 on the same schedule and it won’t look like you’ve crowded the area or have “missing” activities.
