Teaching self help skills is so important for any child and one way to do that is with visual printables for autism. For kids on the autism spectrum this can be difficult. Many children benefit from visual schedules and routines to help. The personal hygiene chart was meant to become an integral part of creating a functional and predictable evening and bedtime routine. Having these routines in place is huge for autistic children because it helps them have more control over their environment. Using visual schedules and supports can also promote Independence in autistic children.
Creating a Visual Bedtime Routine
Along the same lines as my daily schedule, bathroom chart, and what to wear chart– this printable set was designed with autistic children in mind and can be used in combination with more of my free printables for autistic children.
However, you can also use this chart set for pre-readers or any child who may need the visual schedule. And though it’s called a personal hygiene chart in the file, this is really more of a bedtime routine chart and cards set. I will be happy to make new charts that properly reflect this if you’d like. Just let me know.
