What is a picture schedule? A picture schedule is a visual representation of what the student will encounter through the day or within a specific task.
Who can benefit from a picture schedule? Students with autism benefit from picture schedules. Additionally students who feel anxious during transitions during the day could benefit from visual schedules.
Where can you put the visual schedule? A whole group schedule can be posted on the board and individual schedules can go on a student’s desk, cubby or other “check-in” area in the classroom. Schedules can also be portable (on a binder or clipboard) and taken when a student transitions to PE, recess, lunch etc.
