Amazing Blog Post

No, my blog post is not amazing, but this one is:

Visual Schedules, Picture Cards, Chore Charts, and More.....Oh My!!

I've been meaning to put together a page that shows all the uses of PageBuilder, but this is far better than anything I could have come up with because it is being used with success in a home. It has pictures, examples, and just rocks.

Seeing things like this makes working on Mrs. Riley unbelievably fulfilling. Thanks to the author for posting it!

 

 

A Nice Writeup on Creating Visual Schedules

This writeup is well done. http://www.iidc.indiana.edu/irca/education/visualSchedules.html

From the intro:

There is clear research evidence regarding the benefits of using visual schedules with individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) (e.g., Mesibov, et al, 2002; Massey & Wheeler, 2000; Bryan & Gast, 2000). Additionally, a wealth of anecdotal evidence exists. For example, a parent was asked to share the most helpful thing that she had tried with her son (a 15 year old with a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism). She replied that a visual schedule has been the key to increasing his independence and managing his anxiety. She reflected that she wished more parents knew about the difference this would make for both their lives and for that of their child. This article will therefore outline both a rationale for using schedules at home with individuals across the autism spectrum (ASD) (both children and adult children) and the steps parents can take to do so.

It's always been a goal in building Mrs. Riley for the site to not only provide tools but also a community. We bring together so many different types of people who have a lot in common that it just makes sense.

About Mrs. Riley

Mrs. Riley was created so professionals, teachers, and parents could collaboratively make educational materials, starting with picture cards. If you've ever made a picture card with a custom image yourself, you know that it can be tedious. We understand and after going through it ourselves for so long, we decided to wrap the entire process into a single online application.
