Ready to Learn Part 2: Teaching Your Child During COVID-19

This week we will work on setting realistic goals and expectations for your child’s learning and daily needs during this lock down. The first step is to create a realistic  Weekly Event Calendar for your child. The calendar will now become your child’s daily routine.  Below you will see a replica calendar that was created for a client.

How to Implement Visual Schedule for Learning At Home Due to COVID-19

If we can create some normal daily routines for those kids that rely heavily on sameness or are have a tough time with transitioning it will make teaching easier. Let’s start with the basics of a visual schedule. A visual schedule is a set of pictures or words that shows what is happening daily. Parents with children diagnosed with Autism are familiar with visual schedules, but most of them have not had to take on the teacher roll. We are going to work first on creating visual schedule so to assist in establishing routines for school work at home. The visual schedule will help your child know what activities he is going to engage in daily. This will help you and your child feel less anxious and feel more in control.
