Visual Timetables

Visual timetables are a helpful way of supporting autistic children to know what is happening now and what is going to happen next.

The clear structure that we use in Aslan means that for some, the timetables aren't needed after a while, as the children remember the order of what happens each week. However, to start with I have found it very useful to use these for a number of children. There are two different types available here for you to download. All the instructions are included for each one.

In the first timetable the words and pictures show the order of what will happen during the session. As each activity is completed, the picture is removed and stuck onto the velcro on the back of the timetable.

The 2nd timetable is a little different. The pictures are static and the words 'Now' and 'Next' are moved to indicate what is happening.
