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 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.
