Building up transition skills with a 3-year-old with a visual schedule

Marta Rapp Wright

ABSTRACT: This case study is about a pupil who used a visual schedule to help him transition to different activities. The pupil will engage in behaviour that challenges when interrupted to move to a less preferred activity.

The visual  schedule shows a picture of the activity the pupil is doing now, and a picture of the activity the pupil will be doing next. This board showing ‘now & next’ activities to the pupil, helped him understand what was coming next. Consistency by applying the board throughout the sessions played a key role as well. Therefore, we observed a reduction in behaviour that challenges and an increase in this pupil’s independence with transitioning to different activities.
