The Choiceworks Calendar is a powerful picture-based learning tool that helps children learn what is happening day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month throughout each year. Choiceworks Calendar teaches the abstract concept of time in a structured visual format which helps children organize their lives as well as understand sequence and time. Choiceworks Calendar is the first app of its kind to provide a full-featured calendar designed with both the child and caregiver in mind.

Visual supports are highly effective, proven tools for improving communication between children and caregivers.  Calendars are challenging for children to grasp initially due to the abstract concept of time, months, weeks and days.  They are also time consuming for caregivers to setup and maintain.  Choiceworks Calendar addresses all of these challenges.  For caregivers, it provides a streamlined interface for creating, customizing, sharing and maintaining a calendar of upcoming events.  For the child, it provides visual, audio and video supports that make using the calendar an enjoyable learning experience.

Children gain independence and personal responsibility by seeing helpful information such as which days are school days and which days are not.  They also benefit by being informed of upcoming events such as a doctor’s appointment or celebrating a birthday. This clear, simple support provided ahead of time can help a child predict what is going to happen, thereby reducing anxiety.  It helps children understand when there is a change in the routine so they can learn to adapt, become more flexible and better behaved. The information is always visible on the calendar and the child can refer to it as often as needed. 

Helpful Tips

Simple:  When first implementing Choiceworks Calendar, the calendar should be kept simple and be geared toward the child. By reviewing the calendar each day, the child will learn the days of the week, rote counting, number identification and components of the daily, weekly, and monthly schedule.
Visuals:  Put images or videos on the calendar that describe the most important activities of the day. Again, keep it simple. Only include what is important for the child on the calendar.  Start small and gradually increase the amount of information presented as the child begins to understand the passage of time.
Advance: As success with Choiceworks Calendar increases, visually plan out big projects and indicate deadlines for science projects, writing assignments, etc.  Chunk larger projects into smaller, manageable steps that the child can complete each day.  This will focus attention to the current task and lessen anxiety and distraction to other portions of project.

Almost 5 stars

If only there was an option to create an account to share with the other parent or even with the child’s smart device. I have found myself sharing the pic and creating the same schedule on different devices.

Hi Lili529, There is!! You can share an entire calendar with another parent or device. Please see user guides at bee to learn how. You can also email

Thank you

I hate paying for apps especially when they usually aren’t great. but every once in a while, you find that app that it is exactly what you needed! I love the simple graphics and the option to print a full size day or week or month. And the option to share the calendar, the option to customize images and captions. I think the thing I like the most is that it’s not complicated! everything you need and nothing you don’t. nobody coerced me to write this review, I just have a child with autism and I am happy to have this tool.

Needs more recurring options than weekly

I had contacted support a while ago about the inability to select a biweekly option when setting up a recurring appointment. I asked them to recommend that it be added in a future revision. I see it still hasn’t been added. The calendar isn’t useful to me if I have to either create a new appointment every other week or set up a recurring appointment and then have to remove every other one. I saw another reviewer asking for an annual recurring option and I like that idea, too.

I also noticed there’s not an image for therapy/psychologist/counselor. I think there should be.
