Today we made some changes to the OurBoard Visual Timetable. My daughter had been to grandma’s house so she wrote what she had baked and that she has done some sewing.
My wife had made some invitations for tea so we added friends coming on Friday and Saturday. Friday was a bit tricky as we already had two pictures from yesterday so we decided to remove the picture for spending the afternoon at home and wrote the names of our friends instead, as they were considered more important! For Saturday my daughter rubbed out the time for her to go to Chris from the space under the picture and wrote it on the top line, which made more sense anyway, and wrote the names of our friends that are coming for tea.
We decided not to put activities on the bottom row as we are using that for updating, every evening, about what my daughter has done that day. We then have a chat about the whole week, what has happened and what will happen. Hopefully this will help with recall and also with structure of telling people what’s going on. This will help, we hope, with structured conversation.
