Choice Tools for Managing Complex Schedules
Sometimes children feel overwhelmed or frustrated by a full daily schedule. They may also struggle to complete a dreaded task (like schoolwork or chores) or find it challenging to wait for a favorite activity.
Educator and coach Katie Ahearn created two tools to help children navigate these common scheduling challenges. These tools, a Home Schedule Breakdown
and a Home Choice Board
, scaffold children’s emerging executive skills. They also increase predictability (safety), cooperation, confidence and success.
