A mini-schedule is a visual schedule or visual sequencing of events for a short period of time NOT a day schedule. It can be in picture, object, word or numeral format. A mini-schedule can give a sense of time and when an activity will end. Knowing what and when things happen can prevent many behavioral issues.
How can I get my son to brush his teeth when he is getting ready for bed? I have to tell him what to do for every step even though he knows how to do this.
