SpeechPage's TWO STEP PICTURE SCHEDULE SYSTEM is uniquely designed to allow the classroom support staff a quick and easy way to build a custom schedule for the student that can be updated to the next set of events with simple flips.
Many of us who have worked with students with Autism and other disabilities for mulitple years realize the benefits of using picture schedules to help the student understand their day and gain skills of independence. By allowing the student to clearly see what they are to be doing as well as what will come up next for them, the anxieties from uncertainty and transition may be lessened.
56 SCHEDULE CARDS!!!
We provide you with TWO SETS of 28 DIFFERENT CARDS displaying common school day activities and classes that a student taking specialized education may encounter: (Examples: Art, Gym, Speech Therapy, Snack, Rest break, Sensory, OT, Bathroom, Writing, Life Skills, etc)
All cards are of an extra large size (3 1/2 X 4 inches) and double hole punched at the top. They can be arranged in any order for the school day and attached easily with the two sets of two metal rings at the top of the schedule page.
The schedule holding page is a standard size 8 1/2 by 11 inches and designed to display BOTH WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW and WHAT WILL BE COMING UP NEXT. It is designed to be clear and simple with large words and arrows and free of other distractions.
We give you TWO sets of the 28 schedule cards for a total of 56 cards! Two sets allow you to flip both sides to display the item both the NOW and the NEXT area without having to reuse the same cards!
EXAMPLE OF POSSIBLE USAGE:
The student is working on Handwriting now but the student is also aware that there is a Bathroom break coming up next. When it is time to transition, both cards are flipped, and a Bathroom picture (that's why we give you two of each!) would be shown in the NOW area and the next upcoming event such as GYM or ART would be shown in the NEXT area.
This kit is designed and illustrated by Don D'Amore MA CCC/SLP who has been making custom picture schedules for individuals with disabilities for over 15 years.
Like all SpeechPages, EVERYTHING IS HEAT SEALED IN 5 MIL HEAVY DUTY LAMINATE!!
Note: As with all educational and therapy materials, the abilities and limitations of the individual must be considered before choosing these or any AAC materials for usage. Often an alternative method of communication needs to be taught to the student before it can be properly accessed.
