Autism and SRE

A visual timetable supports a person with ASC because they are often more visual than verbal thinkers.  It is important that it is both developmentally appropriate and manged by the person themselves, if possible.  We have often made visual timetables for KS2 and KS3 children as well as preschoolers.  Some teachers have a class visual timetable, which can be good for all children,  but remember the child with ASC may need their own.  They teach a person the order of things, helps them learn about time, prepares them for events and how to organise themselves.  A ‘FINISHED’ pocket to post symbols in once an event or activity is over, is important too.  Learn how visual timetables can teach all kinds of things in this article from my blog.
