SchKIDules Specials Collection is meant to be an addition to the School Collection or Home Collection.  It is an expansion pack that includes 18 magnets themed around special needs activities.  For this reason, there is no real age recommendation for this product.  Special needs children develop at their own pace and may use visual schedules far beyond the typical elementary school aged child.

Add these magnet so display magnets in a linear fashion, showing a young child what’s next so they can anticipate, trust and comprehend.  Some children do better with only a couple activities, others like to see as much as possible.  Try different layouts until you find the one that produces the behavioral results you are looking for.  Also use to help with transitions, lower anxiety, teach daily routines, and increase self management.  Use SchKIDules Headings Sheet to include such headings as TO DO and DONE, or MORNING, AFTERNOON and EVENING (among others), and/or our All Done magnets to help a child mark off when they have accomplished their tasks.

ADHD: Kids with ADHD (inattentive or hyperactive) are easily distracted.  Parents know how much redirection and how many “reminders” are required with kids who lack the ability to stay focused on certain tasks or string of tasks.  Using SchKIDules activity magnets to display the repetitive routines in your child’s day can help reduce the frustration parents feel from constantly repeating themselves and reduce the kids sense of constantly being “told what to do” or the embarrassment of forgetting. Kids learn to redirect themselves to the images displayed and get back on track ON THEIR OWN!

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER: Kids on the Autism Spectrum do much better when caregivers implement visuals.  They improve communication, transitions and comprehension.  Many families receive the recommendation to create a visual schedule at home but find the task difficult and a bit overwhelming. SchKIDules “Specials” sets out to make this task a bit easier by providing you with a full set of high quality, kid-friendly activity magnets you can begin using immediately on any magnetically receptive surface.  Not only does this take no time at all, but the all-magnetic presentation means you can test out what design works best with your child without being stuck with a predesignated template.

SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDER: One of the great things about an all magnetic system is no velcro.  Some kids get distracted by the empty velcro dots or strips when the activity board is not full.  Others do not like the sound or feel of the velcro.   All magnets means clean slate every time you set it up and no distractions or icky sounds or feelings to deal with.
