This is a photo
of the picto door of Nieck! I use Velcro© on the door, where I hang the picture
cards. Every night Nieck and I hang up the cards for the next day. Then he knows
exactly what happens the next day. He likes this very much because he has an
autistic disorder and he cannot handle changes. This way he gets a lot of
structure and visual schedule. This he clings on to...
You can also add a little comment, so we know how
you work with the picture cards....

them to us, to let everybody see how you use your picture cards!
Two pictures where you can see how Fleur and Tim
use the boards with pictograms.
On the magnet board, they stick the cards with clips.
From Mariska de Graaf we recieved some photo's from
her son: Diego. (6 years)
He has Pdd-nos, and the autism picture cards are a big help. She makes the
schedule for a day, so he knows what he can expect.
We changed the texts on the 3 trainingcalendrs for her.
The first calendar (on the right) is Diego's calendar of his behaviour.
When he behaves good, there's a little present or suprise for him. This works
very stimulating. Ofcourse we made these butterlies for them.
The second calendar (on the right) is for her daughter Asilah (13 years).
She has no autistic disorder, but her daily schedule calendar is a good
solution to see what she has to do every day. Here she uses a pink butterfly.
The third calendar is for the whole family, so the parents and children
can see when and with whom they go to a sportsclub!
We get this photo from one of our VIP members... he
sends a mail, writing:
"Greetings of big giant Wonder fans"
Below there are moor more examples of how I use the picture cards:
on the labels for the notebooks; on the board to make the rules clear; on the
tables to remind the children the good way to hold their pencil;
for remembering how to work good: what do I have to do, how do I have to do
this, I'm going to do this; I look at my work: I have also printed this on paper
so they can cross this off for children who need this the most.
Picto-boards of Ashley and Davy.
Every day we hang our cards on the board, so the children can see what we are
going to do. They are very happy with this, but oh no.. if I forgot to change
"Teacher, are we going to do the same thing again!"
