Visual timetables are used to help reduce anxiety, promote routine and help a child with transition of activities. They can be used left-right or up-down. We use the up-down method in school. Ideally the visual timetable should be at the child's height, the routines would be talked through with the child and each activity can be removed from the timetable after it has happened, perhaps placed in a 'finished' box. You can view, or download to print, an example below.
The ASC team holds informal coffee meetings for parents/carers of children with ASC attending the school. The meetings are held in the 'West Wing' between 2.15 and 3.15 on the following dates:
