    What are Routines and Visual Schedules? 🤷‍♀️

    ✅ Routines:

    Routines are the daily life activities that we automatically do each day, often in the same order, mostly without thinking too much about it. For example:

    Morning Routine: wake up, go to the toilet, have breakfast, have a shower, get dressed, pack your bag, leave for school run

    🍎 Why do Kids Function Better with Routines?

    ✅ Routines are predictable
    ✅ They require the same actions, in the same order, on the same days
    ✅ They are reliable and generally don't change too much
    ✅ They provide a sense of security
    ✅ Expectations are known and more easily met
    ✅ Kids can complete the sequence of tasks successfully with practice

    In short, routines set your kid up for success from to moment they wake up. It gives them a point of reference to their day.

    Visual schedules are a great way to set up routines in your house and classroom, and will reduce the stress (and verbal repitition of tasks) when getting ready to go out in the morning... And might just save your sanity too!! 🤣

    🍎 Why do Kids Struggle to Follow Routines?

    Although routines may seem 'automatic' to us as adults, they take a lot of
    ✅ executive functioning skills (behaviours required to plan & achieve goals)
    ✅ time management
    ✅ working memory
    fine motor skills
    ✅ gross motor skills
    ✅ motor planning

    as well as taking into account things like the weather (to get dressed appropriately) and involve problem solving for issues such as when the milk runs out or your favourite cereal box has been put back in the cupboard empty!

    These skills all have to be learned and they take time. This might help to explain why mornings are often such a struggle when you have toddlers or kids with Autism, ADHD and/or similar learning difficulties.

    ✅ Visual Schedules:

    Visual schedules (as shown below) are a sequence of pictures that represent each task that needs to be completed in order.

    Visual schedules are great visual reminders for both young children who are learning to gain their independence as well as people with Autism..

    Visual schedules take away the pressure and stress of having to remember what to do and in what order, especially when there are already so many skills required to complete each task.

    Differnet Types of Visual Schedules:

    Routines and Chores Look Book

    Our Routines and Chores Look Book is a perfect tool to use with your child throughout the day to enable and equip them to gain independence as well as a chance to successfully work on:
    executive functioning skills (behaviours required to plan & achieve goals)
    ✅ time management
    ✅ working memory
    ✅ fine motor skills
    ✅ gross motor skills
    ✅ motor planning

    without the pressure and stress of having to remember what to do and in what order, especially when there are already so many skills required to complete each task.

    ✅ Great for kids with ASD, anxiety & additional needs
    ✅ Not too visually overwhelming
    ✅ Stay regulated
    ✅ Get organised
    ✅ Gain independence

    Now & Then Charts

    Now and Then charts for Home and School are designed for kids with anxiety or additional needs where schedules and daily routines are important for self regulation 😊

    Now and Then charts are visually simpler than a routine strips or books, as they only focus on right now and whats coming up next. I'd recommend using the Routine and Chores Look Book as a visual schedule to refer to throughout the day (at home and in the classroom) to compliment the Now & Then chart.

    💖 Perfect for helping manage transitions between activities and home.

    Tips & Ideas:
    ✅ Use with a timer to help manage transitions between activities. "We are going to go for a bike ride and then I need you to feed the dog"

    ✅ Use with a 'job' activity and then a 'reward' activity

    ✅ Use in combination with our Routines Pack and Personalised Chore Chart

    ✅ Great for managing (negotiating!) homeschooling tasks vs fun or play activities while in lockdown

    ✅ Great for kids with ASD, anxiety & additional needs
    ✅ Not too visually overwhelming
    ✅ Stay regulated
    ✅ Get organised
    ✅ Gain independence

    Routine Strips:

    Routine strips are brightly coloured visual reminders to help your little ones:

    ✅ shower independently 🧼🧼🧼
    ✅ go to the toilet independently 🚽🧻😊
    ✅ brush their teeth 🦷🦷🦷
    ✅ wash their hands ✋🤚
    ✅ wash their hair in the correct order 🧼🧼🧼

    ...without having to yell out to you over and over to ask for help, giving them the confidence to complete the task themselves correctly, and you a little more peace, quiet and sanity during busy mornings and nights!
