Visual Schedule

A visual schedule (also known as an activity schedule or a picture schedule) is a set of pictures that communicates a series of activities or the steps of a specific activity.

It does this by showing an individual with autism what activities will occur and in what sequence.

This helps the individual to understand what is going to happen and what they are supposed to do.
