“A visual schedule is a line of pictures, objects, or words that represent each major transition during the day, for example, school classes, morning and evening routines, or any other order of events or activities. Some parents and professionals tend to worry that creating a daily visual schedule may impact the ability of an individual with ASD to be flexible. However, the opposite is true.

Changes to such routines can also be handled with ease as a potential change (e.g., a substitute teacher or an unexpected trip to grandparents) is made to be a clear and explicit part of the daily routine.”
