This schedule applies to all of our boys - each has to hang their bags (ready for me to intercept any important docs) and then get changed. They always need a snack and time to unwind a little before we tackle the essential homework/reading/therapy.
Getting these essentials done immediately after school helps promote independence and just makes life that little easier for me as I'm aware where everything is and how the evening is looking. I try to get everything done before dinner/Dad gets home to allow plenty of time for other activities, treats or family time.
This part of the website hosts a growing collection of visual schedules which can be printed, laminated and used for free. Use alongside a communication book and PECs or completely independently - do what works for your family.
Visual schedules are an excellent way of helping to prepare, communicate and ease transition/decision-making for those on the autism spectrum, with aspergers, ASD, and indeed many other forms of SEN (special educational needs.)
If you are new to using visual resources then please feel free to take a look at our 'communication book' page which has lots of starter pages - in a variety of themes.
