How to Offer a Visual Schedule

Welcome to a basic tips video brought to you by Aptus Treatment Centre and Mackenzie Health’s Centre for Behaviour Health Sciences. In this video, we’re going to look at visual schedules and how they can be helpful for many different people in various settings.

In this video we will show how a visual schedule, using only simple visuals and few words, can help people make choices about what they want to do and allows the person to have more control over daily events. It is also an easy way to communicate with someone who may otherwise have difficulties communicating their wants and needs.

Visual schedules are easy to make and can be done with simple items around your home or work setting.

These tips and tricks can be used in many different settings and we encourage you to share this video with anyone who might benefit from them.
