3.) Tips for creating an effective schedule / weekly schedule!
Identify the skill or routine that you want to target.
Break the activity down into simple steps that the user can easily understand and perform.
Determine the length of the schedule. While some individuals can use it over a longer schedule spanning an entire day, other users can benefit from schedules with fewer steps. Pick a length that you think will be suitable for your child and adjust them as needed.
Choose an appropriate visual format for the schedule. Research has found schedules in which photos, videos, or a combination that includes any of these elements are more effective than schedules that use line drawings or text alone.
Consider using pictures of you to personalize the schedule once the child / adult has successfully completed the steps of each activity. As a visualized completion / reward.
Teach your child how to keep the schedule. Many individuals require physical or verbal guidance to follow the instructions. In particular, activities when first introduced into the schedule should be properly planned.
Add a way for the child / person in need of orientation to indicate when steps have been taken and completed, eg filling in a check box, or moving moving images from the "to be done" side of the schedule to the "done" side of the timetable.
If a child has difficulty mastering a particular step, plan to further simplify the step by breaking it down into smaller sub-steps.
Provide your child with reassurance when something has been completed. This could be through praise, a reward, or time to do a preferred activity, or anything else
