This app allows for younger children to begin relating activities with the time they will be taking place. It also can work for a checklist of what needs to be done within a specific hour.














First Then Visual Schedules


Picture_21.png
The First Then Visual Schedule application is designed for caregivers to provide positive behavior support for those with communication needs. This application provides an affordable and convenient audio-visual prompting tool for use on the iPhone or iTouch. The portability of the iPhone and iTouch and ease of use of the application make it perfect for use at school, home, or in the community.

Visual schedules provide positive behavior support through the use of images that show daily events (i.e. morning routine or therapy schedule) or steps needed to complete a specific activity, (i.e. using the restroom). For individuals with communication needs, developmental delays, spectrum disorders, or those who benefit from a structured environment, visual schedules serve to increase independence and lower anxiety during transitions through different activities. Visual schedules help set a child up to be successful with clear expectations by promoting understanding of upcoming events.

Top 3 Reasons to Use this App:
1. Completely Customizable: record your voice, insert your own pictures, create your own schedules, OR use the images and schedules provided
2. 3 different formats to view: depending on the need of the student you can view the full screen, a split screen or a First, Then version
3. It is user friendly: easy to edit on the go, add events, delete events that may be canceled

Social Stories


Social stories are wonderful ways to incorporate transitions into schedules and remind students
about what is coming next. A social story allows students to clearly understand expectations, choices, and consequences of behavior. This social story is an example of how a team of general education students and special education student can partner up and create a meaningful project for both students. In this case, the general education students worked with the special education student and teachers to create a script and decide which pictures to take for the story.

This is a slideshow that we have saved onto an ipod that the student or para can take with him to different classes to remind him of expectations throughout the day.
