Activity Schedules for Children with Autism
By Lynn E McClannahan and Patricia J Krantz
Activity schedules provide a series of prompts - a set of pictures or words - that cue an autistic child to follow a sequence of steps. The idea is that this guidance is gradually withdrawn so the child can then independently take part in an activity, such as working with classmates or completing a puzzle. Based on research carried out at Princeton Child Development Institute in the US, this includes a guide on how to use the schedules to promote interaction with other children.

This book looks at how this approach can be applied to a special education classroom, or to pupils with special needs in an inclusive classroom.
