Get up and running fast with your first visual timetable
Supporting children's learning with confidence
Do you have a child who struggles with:
- coping with change
- understanding what they need to do
- transitions between activities
Have you heard about visual timetables, but are not sure if they are right for your child?
Perhaps you think they are a good idea but need some help getting started?Or you have started but have got stuck on implementing?
It's common to not know where to start with visual timetables. Or to understand the basic idea but not to know how to apply it to your situation with your child. Maybe you have been left with some resources by a Therapist or Portage worker, but are not convinced about how it will help? Perhaps you are worried that using a timetable will mean you have to run your home in a really regimented way?
You don't have to change your home, or your personality to get started with a visual timetable! They are a simple tool that can be used to build many skills for your child, and to reduce stress in your communication with your child.
How would it feel to build your confidence with a visual timetable and empower yourself and your child to develop their skills? This course can help! It is designed for people who are completely new to visual timetables.

I have been a Speech and Language Therapist for 15 years. I love to see children succeed, and I know that just one person can turn things around for children with SLCN. Maybe that person is you?
I know that visual timetables are a really useful strategies for lots of reasons! People talk about them a lot, but they often skip over the 'how you actually do it' part. Too often, timetables are set up without a clear idea of what we are trying to achieve. They may be overambitious, inconsistently used, or given up on too early. This is a shame because they are such a useful and straightforward strategy when we do them well.
I can help you to set the groundwork for successful use of a visual timetable for your child by introducing you to 'first-then' visual timetables, the most common starting point for this strategy
