1. CHOICEWORKS for kiddos who use visual supports: This is a great visual scheduling app that allows you to use symbols or photos to create schedules for the day, for an activity, or create and save schedules for specific activities that occur frequently. You can make the schedule using visual supports, set timers, and slide the icons into an “all done” column when you are finished. It also incorporates “waiting” and “when I am upset” boards which provide choices and a timer for the duration of “waiting” and choices for “when I am upset.” **Choiceworks has also created a calendar app, while I haven’t used this personally it may be a great app to consider if you like the original Choiceworks.
2. FIRST THEN VISUAL SCHEDULE is another great app for creating schedules and incorporating personal photos, voices, and movies. This one is a bit more of a financial commitment so it make be a great choice if your child does particularly well with this kind of scheduler.
3. CALENDARS that come on the device itself can be a great way to set alarms, create a visual for the day or months, and create to do lists. There are a number of ways to set alerts- emails, text messages, or pop-ups- and accounts can be managed by multiple people allowing parents and school staff to collaborate.
