The OurBoards Premium Extended Visual Timetables do more than “regular” paper visual timetables
Personalise the board with your own photographs or use images and clipart from the Internet and users will engage rather than just use
The user can choose their own personal images themselves and place them in the amazing, self cling Gecko pockets with no need for laminating
Add notes using any dry-wipe pen to expand on the pictures, to make it personal to the user and to take ownership of the board
Update the board at the end of the day as a reminder of what has been achieved and to use as a conversation starter with family and friends
And because it’s a dry-wipe board any mistakes can be corrected without any messy crossing out, so the board always looks neat and tidy
The beautiful graphics printed on a weatherproof, lightweight foam core give the board its premium feel and bestow a positive sense of self worth
Premium because we make them out of premium materials, it has premium design and it has the option for Gecko self pockets
Extended because the daily and weekly extended boards have four sections for each day/activity so that you can do so much more than just list upcoming activities
Independence · Ownership · Engagement · Involvement · Routine · Conversation · Enjoyment · Self Confidence · Communication
Using an OurBoards Visual Timetable Boards can help your child, or adult in in your care, to understand the activities coming up, either today or this week. By using a flexible, visual tool you can support that person to make their own choices. As well as future activities, the board is designed to enable you, or them, to update the timetable with what has happened. Using the visual timetable to talk through the week coming and the activities done encourages conversation skills, which enhance relationships outside immediate family and carers.
OurBoards Visual Timetable Boards or Visual Schedule Boards are quicker to prepare, easier to use and more robust than a paper schedule. The layout of the board has been designed, in conjunction with parents and professionals, to combine distinct spaces for pictures and notes whilst not overwhelming senses.
Three versions of Visual Timetable Boards are available:
- Table Top Daily Timetable Board
- Table Top Weekly Timetable Board
- Wall Mounted Weekly Timetable Board

Every person is different and the content of the schedule will therefore vary enormously. Here are some examples of how we would imagine the boards being used. The images can be mounted on the boards using blue tack or, for additional ease of use and convenience, using our optional accessory A7 Gecko Self-Cling Pockets.
