The OurBoards A3 personalisable Now Next Board is a lightweight, rigid, dry-wipe board and associated Gecko self cling pockets. It will help you to help those in your care to complete specific tasks and learn to be more independent.

A Now Next Board is a visual strategy used to help children and adults with language difficulties, behavioural issues, SEND or dementia to complete specific tasks.

Typical tasks that can be managed with a Now and Next board include morning routine, evening routine, leaving the house, taking medicine and “how to” tasks such simple as food preparation.

For daily or weekly visual timetables please see our Visual Timetables page.

* We understand that not everyone has the facility to print pictures for use with OurBoards products. In order to make OurBoards as widely available as possible, we will print up to 18 (9 pictures per sheet) photos FREE for customers that have purchased a board that includes Gecko pockets. Once you have ordered your board, you should email your pictures to pictures@OurBoards.co.uk and we will print them and include them with your order. We will, however, leave the cutting out to you.

How to personalise your Now Next board

A Now Next board can be used for many different applications so we have made this board easy to personalise and easy to use.

  1. Download photographs or clip art from the internet or take your own photographs and upload them to your computer.
  2. Print the images. Tip: If you’re using a Windows PC then printing nine pictures to a page using the Wallet (9) template makes the pictures just about the correct size for the pockets.
  3. Cut out your pictures and place them in the Gecko pockets
  4. Remove the backing sheet from the pockets and place them in the correct order in the green column on the board
  5. Show the user the board and go through each picture with them and make sure that they understand what each picture represents
  6. As the user completes each task they move the picture from the green column to the red column to show that it’s been done
  7. Finally, reset the board by moving all the pockets back to the green column
