The Schedule Board makes task completion easier and more fun! The schedule is paired with an ‘all done’ column to check off steps toward a motivating reward. Timers can be added to any task or activity. The schedules are easy to edit and fully customizable. Once you have created a schedule, it will be saved automatically.
The Waiting Board teaches waiting skills like taking turns and not interrupting. The user can begin by reading the companion book, When Do I Have to Wait? Using the waiting board, the top picture indicates the reason why the child is waiting and a timer can be set to show how long the child will wait. The child can then choose an activity to do while waiting.
The Feelings Board provides a tool for helping children understand and express emotions. The user can begin by reading the companion book, When I Get Upset, to provide an example of how the child might recognize an emotion and choose a coping strategy. On the Feelings Board, the user can then help the child indicate how they are feeling from a range of options, select a coping strategy, and then request an activity to help them feel better or re-engage with others.
Helps users identify, manage and cope with feelings across environments throughout the day. By tracking their feelings on the board, users can analyze the data for trends to learn if tasks done at different times of day or in different environments affect outcome. Environments and schedules can then be altered to achieve better results.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this easy to customize visual schedule!
My son has moderate autism. I homeschool him because I don't feel he would thrive in a classroom. We do a lot of life lessons. I have his school day broken into lessons. Each lesson has a few activities, most have photographs I have taken of the actual materials we use and I record my voice to tell him what we are doing. You could even add videos if you use it for things like brushing teeth. He gets a verbal "All Done" and a check mark when he completes each task. It is so easy to customize if we change the tasks from day to day. It is engaging and I don't have to write out a schedule anymore! I love this app!!!
Transformed our children's lives
This app has positively changed the quality of our family time management during school days. We mostly use the schedule boards. The kids each have their own iPad with the app (although there is a feature to have multiple profiles, the timer feature does not work when switching between profiles). They retrieve it in the morning and begin completing their tasks. They are significantly more independent in transitioning from task to task than when they did not have this app. It's a huge relief. I'm actually setting up schedule boards for myself!
I use this app for my work in behavioral therapy with children and families. It is an amazing resource and has steadily improved since I first downloaded it. I recommend this for anyone working with children or adults who benefit from its structure and visual nature. I especially would recommend it for parents who want to help their children succeed and feel accomplished in their daily lives.
