Make a Visual Schedule

    • Individuals with an ASD sometimes have difficulties with sequential processing (i.e., learning the order of events). These difficulties with sequential processing may results in individuals becoming anxious or overwhelmed in certain situations, which in turn may lead to problem behaviors. A visual schedule is a line of pictures, objects, or words that represent each major transition during the day.

    • PictureSET is a collection of downloadable visual supports that can be used by students for both receptive and expressive communication in the classroom, at home, and in the community. This searchable database allows you to find a wide range of useful visual supports for different curriculum areas, activities, and events.
