    I used this app with my daughter at a very young age to establish a daily routine with her. This was a wonderful app to use because it gave her the visual she needed and allowed her to be independent with the daily tasks she needed to accomplish.

    Choiceworks Visual Support System with Schedule, Feelings and Waiting Picture Boards for Special Education and Autism This app is great for working with children on the Autistic Spectrum, or who have other communication disorders. I use it with my son for transitions throughout the day, as well as when there is a change in routine. It is also great for working on waiting skills, which can be a challenge for many kids on the spectrum. This app has no ads, IAPS or social links.

    Choiceworks I think this is one of the best schedulers out there. I use it everyday - to plan sessions, have kids plan their sessions, use it as a treasure hunt check list, and on and on. The possibilities are endless. You can customize schedules with your own pictures and display reinforcers for after completing your schedule. I know of one Mom who uses this app as a checklist for her child in the grocery store. It helps her child know that the shopping will soon end, and there is a promise reward afterwards. There are also waiting boards and feeling boards that you can create. Social Story companion books are also included with all the boards. The updated version of choiceworks now includes individual user profiles, simplified navigation between boards, an improved image editor, and the ability to copy and share boards via iTunes. I recommend this app for all my parents.

    Choiceworks - Visual Support System with Schedule, Feelings and Waiting Picture Boards for Special Education and Autism This is a favorite of mine for creating visual support on the go! Choiceworks gives you three boards to choose from; schedule, waiting and feelings. Name your schedule (getting ready for school) choose a picture to represent the first task or use your own photos, add a time expectation and audio and then a choice of what can be done after completion. You will appreciate the companion books that offer social stories that can be worked on BEFORE creating the visual supports for each of the three areas (Waiting, Feelings and Schedule). Nice app for providing the visual support that so many need!

    Choiceworks - Visual Support System with Schedule, Feelings and Waiting Picture Boards for Special Education and Autism is a superb app which allows children to visually see what they need to do and what they will be able to do as a reward after accomplishing said events or tasks. You can even add a visual timer to the tasks! This is great not only for children on the spectrum or struggling with routine, but for any child learning to organize their day.

    Schedule Board
    The Schedule Board focuses on making task completion easier and more fun, allowing the user to select up to five steps on iPhone, seven on iPhone 5 and eight on iPad that can be easily reordered. The schedule is then paired with an all done column to check off steps toward a motivating reward. As the task image slides to the all done column, the user gets both visual and audio confirmation. Schedules can be enhanced by adding a timer. The schedules are easy to edit and fully customizable. Once you have created a schedule, it will be saved automatically.

    Waiting Board
    The Waiting Board is a great way to teach waiting skills like taking turns and/or not interrupting. The user can begin by reading the companion book, When Do I Have to Wait?, in order to explain to the child the reason why everyone has to wait on occasion. Using the waiting board, the top picture can be selected to indicate the reason why the child will be waiting and a timer can be set to show how long the child will be waiting. Next, both the user and the child can select an activity for the child to do while waiting.

    Feelings Board
    The Feelings Board provides a tool for helping children understand and express emotions. The user can begin by reading the companion book, When I Get Upset, to provide an example of how the child might recognize an emotion and choose a coping strategy. On the Feelings Board, the user can then help the child indicate how they are feeling from a range of options, select a coping strategy, and then request an activity which would likely help them feel better or re-engage with others.
