We believe that an OurBoards Premium Extended Visual Timetable can be a valuable tool to support vulnerable children.
Personal images can be used to create a timetable that a child can identify with, either for a day or for a week. The extended design of the board enables the child, or adult in the situation, to add additional images, pictures and notes about an activity. At the end of an activity or day the child can be encouraged can add pictures, keywords or phrases to represent the positive aspects experienced.
The premium design and materials of the board and the innovative Gecko self cling pockets make it a pleasure to use the board. The dry wipe surface encourages children to write or draw, knowing that changes can be made easily.
A carer or practitioner in the situation can go over the images and keywords and use them as positive reinforcement, either for a regular routine or to build a positive relationship, where perhaps there isn’t one. When used in this way an OurBoards Premium Extended Visual Timetable can be a powerful tool to help bring stability to a vulnerable child.
