A simple A3 weekly schedule, with one column for each day. This board allows the user to easily see their week ahead in a clear visual format, and can reduce anxieties and stress.
It comes with a collection of 12 different symbols for common weekly activities, with additional symbols for school, home, and respite – a total of 24 symbols. Symbols include: home x 4, school x 5, respite x 3, doctor, dentist, shop, sports, swim, party, family, friend, hospital, clean room, cinema, surprise.
This is the first step in the individual planning their own week, and starting to think about the longer term rather than just the ‘here and now’. It can also reduce anxieties and stress if the individual can easily see what they will be doing on any given day in a clear visual format.
This board is a vital first step towards achieving independence.
Symbols are 4.5cm square, meaning that they are large enough to see (we understand that people with autism are visual learners), but still easy to handle and use.
