Episode 192: Step 4: Visuals Aren't a Magic Wand Visuals and schedules are tools. And tools need to be taught. Tools require instruction. We need to teach our students how to utilize these tools. They will not be a magic wand. In this episode, I share how to teach the visuals you are setting up in your classroom so students can use them independently.

Episode 190: Step 4: What Are Door Visuals and Why You Need Them We all know visuals are important in the classroom. When setting up your classroom, make sure you have the right visuals in the right places. Visuals should be embedded into your classroom so you can readily utilize them. Post visuals by your classroom door that will be needed outside of the classroom. Make a list of visuals you need outside your room: for the bathroom, specials, lunch, etc. Store these visuals near the door for easy grab-and-go.

Episode 189: Step 3: Why You Should Move Away From Moveable Piece Schedules Schedules with moveable pieces are great to provide substantial support and visual prompting for how to navigate the classroom. Once students are successful with this type of schedule, move towards a paper schedule. These schedules provide more options for generalization. You can more readily incorporate these schedules into new settings leading to more independence.

Episode 188: Step 3: Incorporating Planned Changes in Your Schedule In life, changes are inevitable. But sometimes handling changes can be difficult. Instead of waiting for extremely challenging changes to common, work on small, manageable changes in your schedule with your students. Start small, provide support, and then fade.

Episode 187: Step 3: Least Restrictive Schedule Continuum Student schedules are necessary in the classroom. Schedules are functional and needed to build independence, autonomy, and problem-solving skills. The goal is not to get rid of the schedule but rather to increase independence with the schedule and continue to move towards less restrictive schedule types. In the episode, I introduce the least restrictive schedule continuum. Different types of schedules provide more/less support. It’s essential to pick a schedule type for each learner that meets their needs but also for as much generalization as possible.

Episode 185: Step 2: Why a Structured Environment is Key A structured environment is key because it leads to decreased negative behaviors, less student anxiety and increased independence and efficiency. A structured environment is a setting that is predictable and routine based. The setting is visually divided and defined. There is a clear start and end to each part of the class. In the episode, we explore why this setting is essential to a range of learners.
