Lay the foundations for a restful night’s sleep with this simple, yet effective, plastic Evening Routine Schedule. A very helpful tool to make the evening routine go more smoothly. This schedule board breaks down the steps needed to prepare for bed in a clear visual manger, perfect for those that rely on a consistent routine to reduce anxiety. Increasing understanding and providing predictability means fewer upsets and meltdowns. It breaks down the evening into small, manageable chunks, which helps with getting through what needs to be done. This board comes with 12 common evening activity symbols, with space for five on the board at any one time. Using images give the person clear, visual instructions, at a time when verbal ones may not be processed as well (or even at all). Using this board adds a sense of clarity and purpose, which can decrease stress and generally help the evening and bedtime go more smoothly. Designed initially for autistic children, it has been used successfully with an wide age range and also alternative diagnoses such as learning disabilities, ADHD, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and even dementia. Being made from plastic means that both the board and symbols are flexible, yet remain strong and extremely durable. This product is part of the Autism Supplies and Developments range of visual communication aids, which were originally designed to help our own autistic son. With over 30 years professional and personal experience being with those on the spectrum, you can be sure that these products are well designed and helpful.
Great to introduce a sense of calm and relaxation to the evening, and introduce a positive bedtime routine to help everyone get a good night’s sleep.
Both board and symbols are made from plastic so they are incredible durable and hardwearing
The board measures 31cm x 8cm – a great size to keep it easily portable around the house yet easy to see. The symbols themselves are 4.5cm square, again easy to both see and handle.
Includes 12 pre-printed plastic symbols of common evening activities. However, we use hook and loop fasteners with our products, to ensure that the board is also compatible with your existing symbol library
Uses the same symbols as the Boardmaker software, which are the images that most schools and facilities rely on. This means that individuals are likely to already be familiar with the symbols used which can be extremely important when trying to encourage the use of the product.
