Are you looking for a way to help families develop routines at home like you have worked hard to develop in your classroom?
Being on the same page can make a big difference when parents are consistent at home. When parents use similar ways to help their child transition throughout their day this can transfer over to the classroom setting in a positive way.
This Autism Home Schedule is designed for children with Autism. However, children with special needs in Preschool, Kindergarten, First, 2nd, and 3rd grades as well.
As we know, students with Autism can have difficulty with transitions and when we can help a parent who is struggling to get their child ready and out the door in the morning, it can help their stress level and the child’s.
I have found open house and conferences are a good time to get to know the families a little more.
Often families of special needs have specific knowledge on what works at home. This can be a great time to get to know them and see what is difficult for them at home.
The Autism Home Schedule includes cards for boys and girls, unique experiences that they may go to in the Summer such as going to fireworks, swimming, and eating ice cream.
Children who have difficulty with transitions benefit from knowing what comes next. Setting timers, and providing visuals can help them to predict what their day will look like.
This can help eliminate early morning difficulties as they transition in to class. If students know each step in the morning, it can become comfortable for them to transition right into the class setting.
