Video of the Week: Visual Schedules with AAC Learners
A- A+

While our therapy sessions are highly individualized to meet the needs of specific individuals, there are a couple of strategies that are effective with almost every learner on our caseloads. Topping that list is the use of visual schedules. Whether it is a written agenda, a picture schedule for the session, a mini schedule for the parts of an activity, or an object schedule for the day’s events, this is one of the few strategies that has something to offer every learner.

We’ve written before about this topic. In this post, you can find links to many of the topics we’ve addressed about making and using them.  Today, we’ll look at a few videos on the use of this strategy.

Working with students who are visually impaired? In this video, Hilary Travers demonstrates a portable schedule book that she developed for one of her teenage students.
