A visual schedule is an important component for a structured classroom environment. It will assist the student in transitioning independently between activities and environments, and tells the student what activities will occur and in what sequence. A visual schedule often lessens the anxiety level of children with special needs and reduces some challenging behaviors. Visual schedules can be used in all environments and can be particularly helpful in religious school settings.
