Many individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder thrive on routine, predictability, and structure. The COVID-19 pandemic, an unexpected and unprecedented situation, has significantly changed our daily structures and routines, and it has added unwanted schedule-gaps. Online schooling asks parents to engage their children in learning activities while simultaneously managing their jobs and perhaps their other children’s education in the home. New routines must be learned. Additionally, many fun activities students typically enjoy are now inaccessible due to the pandemic. Schedules are tools that help structure the day, teach new routines, and assist with challenging behaviors. This edWebinar will teach you about the different types of schedules and when to use each of them. Moreover, it will teach you how to create and implement schedules that your students with autism will follow.

This edWebinar will be of benefit to preK through high school teachers, librarians, school leaders, therapists, and aides. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
