I have created quite a few visual schedules and printable packs. As of this moment, there are three focus areas for those. Preschool/toddler printable packs, Bible/Christian printable packs, and printable packs for autism and special needs. Maybe that’s how you found me in the first place. And while I do try to be as straightforward/no-frills as possible; sometimes I realize that I could be explaining things better. So, just in case you’re curious as to how we use and assemble printable packs at home; I created this recommended resource page.


General Resources that We Recommend

When I create printable packs and visual schedules, I will always recommend that you print in black and white. Of course, some do look better in their full glory. But I like to save on ink. It’s easier to save on ink when you use a laser printer. But we also have an injket printer for everyday use.

Cardstock is sturdier than standard printer paper and is also my recommendation of choice when it comes to printing out our resources.

Visual Schedule Specific Resources

In addition the printer and cardstock, when it comes to printing out and using a visual schedule; it will also depend on how you want to use it. I will always recommend that you laminate for lasting use.

And that you use Velcoins to attach the symbol cards to the schedule.Just keep in mind that when you purchase Velcoins, you need to purchase both the HOOK and the LOOP. Otherwise you won’t be able to attach them together.

You can either hang the schedules on the wall or put them in a binder for portability. Some schedules and charts will definitely be more suited for hanging on the wall.
