A visual schedule may help children with autism understand their morning routine. April Keaton, a social worker at The Autism Program of the University of Illinois's Family Resiliency Center, says, “Visual schedules are a research-supported pro-active strategy that can add to a child's comfort level and security.” Keaton explains that visual schedules offer children a sense of control and independence in their lives. If the child has a question about what happens next during the day, parents can remind them to look at their visual schedule. Keaton’s visual schedule tips include using lots of color and pictures or images of things a child likes, and then hanging the schedule in a prominent place.
