Schedule Changes

We couldn’t resist one more video about visual schedules. There are so many things we love about this one from SET BC, starting with the fact that the student sets it up. We also love hearing how they have changed the schedule to meet the student’s individual needs as he has matured. My favorite part was hearing how successfully they used a ‘Something’s Different’ symbol to indicate when an unusual activity was going to occur. – Happy viewing! – –

Video of the Week: Building Complex Schedules

Video of the Week: Building Complex Schedules

This week, we feature a video that highlights software for making picture schedules by Cognitopia. We like how this video helps illustrate the decision-making process for developing a picture schedule using Picture Planner 3.0. You can download a free trial here and access the lite version of the app here. We like how this video reminds us to consider not just what the person will be doing at a particular time, but also what they will need to bring or have in order to be successful.

Video of the Week: Visual Schedules & Inclusion

We love strategies that work for everyone and visual schedules certainly fall into that category. Although the my planner might look different from the ones used by kids in our AAC preschool, the purposes are quite similar. This video from Kids Included Together (KIT) project at the National Training Center on Inclusion makes that point well. Watch for the nice examples of schedules using pictures and objects.

Video of the Week: Aided Language Input Demo

This week’s video features Gail Van Tatenhove doing part of a lesson on disaster preparedness, something we take pretty seriously in Florida during hurricane season. In this short clip, Gail is modeling on a large AAC language board/poster. She is working with a small group of adults who use SGDs and they are using core words to talk about the concept of ‘an emergency.’
