FREE MISC. LESSON - “Leisure Schedule Board Freebie (Autism, Special Education)”

by Autism Classroom Resources-Christine Reeve
Pre-Kindergarten - 12th Grade

This set of free leisure mini-schedule visuals is great for students with autism and those with behavioral issues to help keep students engaged in summer months and to structure recess and free time in school. This free download includes directions for assembling the board and ideas for implementation. 

Many students benefit from having the larger activities of their scheduled day (e.g., reading) broken down into smaller components. We use this strategy frequently for students with behavioral issues to help them understand what is expected before they earn reinforcement or a break. For some students mini schedules help ease the anxiety they might feel about what is going to happen next so they can focus on what is happening now. For others, it helps them see the end of tunnel of doing what you want them to do instead of what they want to do. For some it helps them to navigate the larger activity independently. In this post I want to focus on the type of mini-schedule we often use for activities to help students who struggle with challenging behavior to be able to manage in the activity successfully. Mini-schedules also help to keep students engaged in activities, whether they are structured activities or free time activities like recess.
