Teaching Strategy 4: Schedules

Schedules are so important in an autism classroom.  They help make the day predictable and organized for our students.  You can and should use schedules for everything!  

In my class, we have a class-wide daily schedule... 

 A monthly calendar (with scheduled events)

Each student has their own individualized schedule (all VERY different).  Some are written schedules, others are pictures.  Some kids have their schedules on a page in a binder, where others may have theirs velcroed on the wall.

Many of our stations have mini schedules for students to know which activity they are completing that day.  

We use schedules for field trips, special events, and for life skills (such as hygiene routines).
