Project 365: 31

Aaron, my darling 3yo son, has been having some trouble with transitioning between activities during the day. His speech therapy team, (yes, we have a team: occupational therapist, speech therapist, special ed teacher), suggested that we make a “visual schedule” for him. So, I got out my cell phone and photographed our typical day (no small task, I assure you.) Once I had them all printed, I cut them out, and taped them to a 6 foot tall banner on our kitchen wall. We haven’t implemented it yet, but when we do, I’ll be sure to let you know how it’s working. This could be a really helpful tool for us- maybe it will help eliminate (or lessen) the crying jags and temper tantrums! That would be a true gift.

Project 365 Photo Idea: Take a picture of something indicative of your child’s stage in life. Are they potty training? Get a photo (but don’t share it online lol). Are they learning to read? Snap it. Are they beginning to like carrots? Boom, photo done. These will make for great memories AND help you keep track of when which kid did what.

  1. I am a fellow Capture Your 365 er. A visual schedule will help. We found that knowing what to expect each day and a good regular schedule helped a lot. We always let out son know exactly what was coming up, who we would see, where we were going, etc. A really good sleep schedule helped also. The more rested he was the less the meltdowns. Consistency was our life word…always be consistent! Good luck!
