Dawson's teacher sent home the velcro boards we talked about and it's already going pretty well. He was excited to see it and started using it right away. I had some people wondering what a velcro schedule is, so here it is! Having grown up with a special needs sibling, I often forget that many people don't know what this stuff is. ;)
I taped his schedule to the fridge, it's laminated so it should last a while. Just a strip of velcro on the side to stick the little squares to. The little squares are also laminated and have a little square of velcro on the back. The orange pocket is for the things we've already done, so when he finishes something, he removes the square and puts it in the pocket and then looks to see what's next. It really helps him transition between places and activities when he knows what's coming and what to expect.
