Making Everyday Routines Go More Smoothly
Launch Routine Cards
Kids often find comfort in doing the same things each day in the same way and having structure. Following simple routines can be especially calming. Choose one everyday routine for which kids need a little extra support.
Choose a narrator, or none at all. You can customize the routine by deleting steps or by changing their order. (You can also print out the cards to help teach the steps of the routine.)
Go through the steps in the routine together. Consider making your own routine cards for each task (going to the library, taking the bus, and so on).
