Visual Schedule Benefits

Visual Schedule Benefits

Young children want to know the plan and have a sense of control over their day.

Communicating this information in a way children can remember and understand can be challenging. Young children:

  • need a longer time to process instructions
  • forget what was said
  • do not hear the instructions
  • get distracted
  • do not like the options given

A picture schedule gives kids the information they need in a way they can understand and remember – much like adults refer to a calendar or to-do list. Armed with information and choice, kids are more likely to cooperate and adults and children can enjoy the activities together.
