A Visual Schedule is the first wearable picture-based scheduler designed with children and adults with autism in mind. (Also works on iPhone and iPad.)
The intuitive user interface makes it easy to create a picture-based tailored daily schedule. Empower your child or yourself to independently keep track of scheduled activities and understand:
• What is the activity you are engaged in this moment
• How long the scheduled activity will take
• What tasks to complete
• How much time is left for the scheduled activity
• When to get ready to transition
• When the next scheduled activity will happen
This app will display each event as it is happening on the Apple Watch. With an easy to understand icon and progress bar, the app will also display how much time has passed and when the event will end. In addition, the user can see and check the tasks related to the event. This unique feature allows individuals to stay-focused and be fully present in order to complete the task at hand.
When used on the iPhone, this app makes creating and managing events and tasks a snap. There are 14 ready-made schedule icons and the ability to create custom icons. A parent, teacher or caregiver can also set a day’s schedule and a whole week’s schedule.
=Greater Independence with Supports for Time Management
Understanding and following a daily routine is an important life skill that is often difficult for children who struggle to manage their time. Enhancing a child’s ability to self regulate potential anxiety. Teachers and parents spend time making visual schedules, task analysis, and social stories in order to help their child understand and follow daily routines. These methods are designed based using low-tech options like paper calendars and visual timers. Some high-tech tools for iPhone and iPads are used by adults to teach children but are not used independently by the children who really need it.
=Apple Watch as Assistive Technology
This app was designed by award-winning designers and parents who believe that technology, like the Apple Watch, can help our children learn and function independently. This wearable scheduler has been tested by families with autism as well as typical children and adults.
