This product is perfect for those that need to know what is coming up, and also for introducing the basic concepts of the passage of time. With 7 columns, one for each day of the week, the key events for each day can be attached to the board with the enclosed hook and loop fastenings. This promotes forward planning, and encourages the taking of responsibility. One of our most popular products, this A3 sized plastic board is perfect for attaching to the wall or keeping in a clearly visible place to make it easy to refer to quickly. The board comes with a massive 24 pre-printed plastic symbols, ensuring it caters also for events that happen multiple times per week (e.g. school). Both the board and the symbols are made from plastic, meaning they are durable and extremely hard wearing. Designed initially for autistic children, it has been used successfully with a wide age range and also alternative diagnoses such as learning disabilities, ADHD, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and even dementia. Being made from plastic means that both the board and symbols are flexible, yet remain strong and extremely durable. This product is part of the Autism Supplies and Developments range of visual communication aids, which were originally designed to help our own autistic son. With over 30 years professional and personal experience being with those on the spectrum, you can be sure that these products are well designed and helpful.
Perfect for those than need to know what is going to happen in order to reduce anxiety levels. It provides a clear visual picture of the week ahead, and increases responsibility while decreasing stress and anxiety.

Includes 24 pre-printed plastic symbols of common activities. This includes multiple symbols to cover activities that happen repeatedly in the week, for example school. Symbols also cover a range of social meetings, leisure activities, medical appointments and respite arrangements. However, we use hook and loop fasteners with our products, to ensure that the board is also compatible with your existing symbol library.
Uses the same symbols as the Boardmaker software, which are the images that most schools and facilities rely on. This means that individuals are likely to already be familiar with the symbols used which can be extremely important when trying to encourage the use of the product. The images are Mayer-Johnson images, by Dynavox Mayer-Johnson, and are used with permission.
