We are very happy to announce the release of our new app, This for That: Visual Schedules. The app is designed for behavioral therapists, teachers and parents who are working on adaptive and task completion skills with children on the autism spectrum.
Visual schedules are great assistive tools for children with autism spectrum disorder or any children who need help completing routines independently. They work by breaking down tasks (like tying shoes or making a PB&J sandwich) into simple steps and using visual cues to help the child along the way. The problem is visual schedules are constructed from paper and creating them requires a lot of materials, organization and time – valuable time that could otherwise be spent working directly with the child.
