Easily Create Personalized Schedules

Many children on the spectrum have difficulty with changing routines, which can be troublesome.

The very nature of going out and attending school involves uncertainty, and a lot of kids have a hard time preparing themselves for the tasks to come.

For example, one special education teacher that I talked to specifically referenced a need to prepare kids for school fire drills.

With the social skills stories app: i Get… My Schedules at School, you’ll be able to quickly and easily create personalized schedules for your child!  This well-designed iPad app allows you to add photos, add titles, and check off activities when they are complete!

The app is a gem when it comes to keeping kids on track throughout the day, as well as preparing them for any upcoming changes to their daily schedules.

 

i Get … My Schedules at School: Creating a User

When you first open the application, you’ll notice that there are no users listed.  So, you will have to create one.

This is very easy to do!

Just tap the “Add User” button on the bottom of the screen.  From here, just type in the child’s first and last name.  Then, you can add the child’s photo.  That’s it … No further setup required!

*Keep in mind that you can always go back and add more users, if needed.

 

Settings and Tutorial Access

Once you have created a user, it’s time to get familiar with the app’s interface.  The Settings cog is on the top left.  This area can be useful if you need help while using i Get … My Schedules, as there is a tutorial listed there.

I did not find any of the other options to be vital to the app’s performance, but you can quickly browse them if you would like.

Note:  One feature that you might find helpful is a “Lock the App” capability – just set a 4-digit lock code and you can prevent accidental deletion of data.

 

Social Skills Stories: Building Schedules

Now that you’re familiar with the app, you can go ahead and tap on the User that you have just created.

This will bring you to a page that lists all of the current books that have been pre-loaded onto the app.  You’ll find a wonderful selection of pre-loaded books:

  • Monday book
  • Tuesday book
  • Wednesday book
  • Thursday book
  • Friday book
  • Assembly book (for school assembly days)
  • Delayed Start book (oh, those snow days!)
  • Early  Dismissal book
  • My Favorites book
  • My Photos book

Plus, you are free to edit, delete, and create books as you wish!

 

Editing Schedules, Pages, and Books

Let’s imagine that you would like to Add a Book, such as Fire Drill.  Start by tapping on the “Add Book” button on the bottom right of the application screen.

If you would like to Edit Books and Pages, here’s what you’ll need to do.  (Don’t worry, it’s easy!)  Just tap on the book that you wish to alter, and then hit either “Edit” or “Add Page.”

Tapping the Edit button will allow you to turn pages off in a specific book.  This is something that you will probably want to do, as there are a ton of pre-loaded slides that may not be relevant to your child at this point in time.

With that being said, you could potentially create a solid schedule without having to build any NEW pages at all!

Just from the conversations I have had with special needs teachers this past few months, I believe that i Get … My Schedules at School social skills stories app really has a lot of potential!

There are a ton of creative ways in which you could use this app, and I look forward to hearing some of them from YOU in the comments section!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
