VELCRO To Do List For Kids

Occasionally I hear from customers who have used The Trip Clip® in new and creative ways. Traci from Colorado turned her list into a VELCRO list for kids on the Autism spectrum. The great thing about a VELCRO list is that the boards can be carried anywhere, they can be used at school as well as at home.

The Trip Clip can be used to make a visual VELCRO checklist for kids with special needs.

“I know your product was not originally intended for special needs kids, but I just want to say how much I love having it at my fingertips for use with children that are on the Autism spectrum. I’ve made many visual schedules/checklists by slightly modifying your product from its original intended use.

I used the weekly chore chart option to print all the pictures I needed for [my daughter’s] daily schedule, but I wanted movable pieces. Once I printed, I cut the pictures apart to make individual pieces, laminated them, and attached them with velcro. Many of the pieces I used the custom feature to make them more specific.”

Visual School Schedule

visual school schedule is a great way to help kids know what to expect from their school day. It’s great for kids with ADHD, Asperger’s, and Autism. It’s also great for kids being home schooled! With over 75 images to choose from you can easily make a visual schedule of your child’s day.

Great for home schooling, and also for kids with Autism, Asperger's, ADHD, and other special needs.

A visual schedule offers many things to special needs kids:

  • There is comfort in knowing what is coming next. Being able to see the events of the day can help them track their progress, and will also ease transitions.
  • A visual schedule helps with time concepts like first, next, and last.
  • Most people learn best when they both hear the information, and see the information. A visual schedule can reinforce auditory instructions about what is coming next.
  • The combination of letters and words can help with literacy development.
  • A visual schedule can help teach executive functioning skills like planning, organizing, and time management.
