Activity Schedules For Children With Autism

Activity Schedules For Children With Autism

DRB 172
This updated edition of Activity Schedules shows parents and service providers how to help children and adults successfully engage in self-directed and purposeful activities. Activity schedules are a set of pictures or words that cue a child to follow a sequence of steps. Based on ABA methods, learners are taught using a system of graduated guidance - physical prompts are systematically faded as performance increases. Once the individual has mastered their use, he or she can independently follow a schedule to engage in activities at home, at school, and during leisure time. For example, activity schedules can cue an individual to prepare food with minimal assistance, interact with classmates, and complete a puzzle.

Detailed instructions and examples help parents prepare their child's first schedule, then progress to more varied and sophisticated schedules, leading to greater independence.
