Free Visual Support:Countdown Board (PDF)
Predicting what is going to happen next, comprehending how much work needs to be done, and understanding the passage of time all present unique challenges for children with Autism and related disabilities. Two different visuals are included in this download. The first one is a countdown board that that indicates how many more problems, questions, or activities are scheduled to be completed prior to being all done. The second focuses on how many minutes are scheduled in an activity before its conclusion. Both of these visual supports are designed to help children actively engage by providing information that can help them understand and predict expectations. The video tutorial describes the assembly and use of these supports.
