Choiceworks!

Published July 10, 2013 9:05 AM by Alexandra Streeter

This summer I am fortunate to be doing a small language group for a  private practice in my town. I have three sweet preschool students for an hour and a half twice a week.

As I was preparing for my group at home, I realized I have used up my free Boardmaker trial, and desperately wanted a visual schedule prepared in advance of the first session! I did what any SLP with an IPad would do, and turned to the APP store!

There were several options for visual schedules, but I decided on "Choiceworks."

I really liked the library of images included in the app. You can easily add your own pictures, set a timer for each activity and, once the activity is completed, swipe the picture into the "done" column. There are visuals and social stories for when a student has to wait or is upset, which can be easily modified for each child.

At school I like to create a visual plan or schedule for each session whether it be  writing on a whiteboard or on a paper. This way I can refer the children back to the schedule when they ask "When are we going to play a game?" or  "Am I going to get a prize today?" I am looking forward to using this app for my therapy sessions! I would also recommend it for parents who are struggling to have their children follow basic morning/bedtime routines.

Check out this in the APP store or at http://www.beevisual.com/
