Summary
"A revolutionary teaching tool, an activity schedule is a set of pictures and/or words that cue children and adults to perform tasks, engage in activities, or enjoy rewards. For example, activity schedules can help a person do laundry, talk to a classmate, or play with toys. This new edition of the bestselling guide for families and professionals covers all the exciting successes and far-reaching impacts of using activity schedules--increased independence, social interaction, self-management--and provides the reader with step-by-step guidance for creating and implementing them"--Cover, p. 4
