Many students with autism love predictability and routine. They feel calmer when they know:
• What am I doing next?
• How long will it last?
• What can I do when I’m finished?
• When can I do what I am really interested in?
It’s brilliant to see that so many primary classrooms now have a whole-class visual schedule (either written or symbols + words) at the side of the interactive whiteboard.
Temple Grandin has said that anxiety is the main emotion in autism. By using a simple schedule, we can help alleviate any school-routine-related anxiety. Just ensure that it’s a living, breathing thing, and not just something that looks good!
