Visual Schedules by SchKIDules

What is a Visual Schedule?

Visual schedules are wonderful behavioral tools for kids that help families communicate and operate with less stress.  Simply put, they use pictures to communicate a sequence of events, a plan, or an expectation to a child.  They are different than a kids calendar because they actually have psychological benefits that improve behavior versus just supplying information about the date, weather, and holidays.

Why do they work?

Visual schedules tap into a child’s visual learning center. This is a pretty powerful place because pictures activate visual learning skills that otherwise go untapped when we only communicate verbally.  Supporting our messages and expectations with visuals reinforces and strengthens our communication AND allows a child to take the time they need to absorb the information.  When kids can see what’s next, you’ll be surprised what behavioral changes become possible. 

How can they help my family?

Establishing routines, teaching self-management, setting expectations, transitioning through activities, and handling meltdowns are “par for the course” for any parent.  But these common parenting tasks can be made more difficult with certain personality types and particularly hard to navigate if a child has been diagnosed with something like ADD or Autism.

A Parent of a child on the spectrum writes: Our oldest child is autistic and has a very difficult time transitioning and remembering what he has been asked to do. We have tried many methods to help him with little success. So far, the magnets are doing the trick!! He loves that he can remove one when that task is complete. I love that they don’t tear and ruin like paper pictures. He also enjoys showing the pictures to his brother about what he is doing! Thank you for offering an amazing product at a great price!
