Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Usual timetable

Picture symbols which represent each activity in the day (and/or use words if the child understands these) with velcro on the back;

Velcro board to stick them to;

A normal day!

  1. At a point earlier in the day (preferably at the beginning), go through the activities you will be doing. Put a card down for each activity in order;
  2. As you come to each activity in the day, refer the child to the corresponding picture in the timetable;
  3. Later in the day - preferably at the end - go through the timetable again;
  4. Once the child is familiar with this, see how much of the timetable they can construct at the beginning and end of the day. Check they are able to show which activity they are currently doing on the timetable.

This activity is about ensuring that the child understands their usual timetable.

Do this activity on a 'normal' day (or at least one that is likely to be normal).

The child should be able to understand the pictures or words you use for the timetable. If not, you should spend some time showing the child the picture symbol word when they are doing the activities in the routine. See also: "Use a visual timetable" on the Commtap site.

If a whole day is too much, you could do this over a part of the day - for example the morning or the afternoon.

Timetable - day which is different

Picture symbols which represent each activity in the day (and/or use words if the child understands these) with velcro on the back;

Velcro board to stick them to;

A day which is different.

Ideally, the child should already be able to construct the timetable for the 'normal' day with minimal prompting.
