Visual Schedules and Autism

A visual schedule is a set of pictures that communicates a series of activities or the steps of a specific activity.

It shows an individual on the autism spectrum what activities will occur, and in what sequence.

A schedule can be created using photographs, pictures,written words, physical objects or any combination of these items.

Schedules can be put into notebooks, onto a wall or schedule board or onto a computer.

Most visual schedules are introduced with adult guidance that gradually decreases with time. Eventually, the individual with autism may learn to create their own schedules.
