  • Provides students with predictability decreasing anxiety, frustration and worry

 

When should I do it:

  • When a student gets off task easily, is easily frustrated, is anxious about the school day

 

How do I do it:

  • You can write your schedule on the board daily, crossing off events as they occur.
  • You can provide the student with an individual schedule on their desk daily, having them cross off events as they occur
  • The schedule can include pictures as well as words
  • You can also add a timer for each topic, providing student with a time frame for each subject
