Creating and Applying Schedules to Your Child's Daily Life

IncludeNYC created a helpful tip sheet on creating and applying schedules for children with disabilities. Schedules are important when creating consistency and structure for your child, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Creating a daily plan with clear timeframes can help increase a child’s independence and help them plan and prepare for transitions throughout the day. Schedules can also benefit caregivers, by helping them plan their own day and accomplish the items on their to-do list.
