Visual Schedules Reduce Anxiety And Increase Independence!

When special educators and parents ask "What can I do to help my autistic student or child with transitions?", my response is always to "use visual supports". Specifically, "use a visual schedule".

But, so often the words "use a visual schedule" can send you down the rabbit hole of:

  • doing a Google search for "visual schedules"
  • finding WAY too many options
  • starting to feel overwhelmed & stressed
  • deciding to wait because you don't know where to start

There is a better way! The Visual Schedules Made Easy Course will help you confidently take action and create visual schedules for your students or child.

Kick That Feeling Of Overwhelm To The Curb!

  • Follow a step-by-step process to create an individualized visual schedule
  • Gain the support of your team or family members and increase consistency
  • Find simple ways to store and access your visuals for the schedule
  • Get support in choosing the length of the schedule and the types of symbols to use

If you put a mental "check" next to any of these questions, then the "Visual Schedules Made Easy" course is tailor-made for you!

Visual schedules that really work in both a busy preschool self-contained and integrated environment!


I'm Tara! πŸ’•

I'm a speech/language pathologist, and I've run a communication-based classroom for young autistic children for 2 decades.

I have a passion for using visual supports in my classroom to help create predictable routines for my students. I've learned so much through trial and error over the years and I love sharing the strategies that have stood the test of time. These visuals work with most children and are easy for support staff to carry out.

I founded Autism Little Learners in 2019, and love connecting with educators and parents to help reduce their overwhelm and help them experience progress and small successes that build upon each other!

A Word From Your Instructor

When your students can use their visual schedules independently it changes everything!  If you are like me, there are times that you feel like you have to continuously prompt your students for every single transition.  What if they could transition independently?  How would that change the "flow" and stress level in your classroom?  I've seen this transformation happen over and over, and it's amazing!  This course will show you how.

I created Visual Schedules Made Easy because I was getting so many DM's and emails from educators and parents who wanted ideas and tips for creating and implementing visual schedules. They also wanted to know how to get other team members to actually use them consistently!

Parents often hear "use a visual schedule at home", but don't know where to start.  They reached out to me with so many questions.  This course is a solution to that problem too.  I wanted to provide a step-by-step framework for how to both create and implement visual schedules.  This course will do just that.

This course is for educators who want to create new visual schedules, or revamp their schedules and get fresh ideas.  It's also for parents who want to get started and learn all of the "ins and outs" of visual schedules.  You are both in the right place!

I hope you join me inside "Visual Supports Made Easy", where I will support you along the way.

All my best,

Tara Phillips

I've been using visual schedules in my classroom for a LONG time 🀣

In 1997, when I was student teacher, we relied on polaroid pictures for schedules. The pictures you see on the left are of me when I was student teaching and working with my first autistic students. We put Velcro on the back and that was our visual schedule!

Then, Boardmaker symbols became more widely available and we replaced the polaroid pictures with those.

Now, we have so many options for types of symbols and visuals schedules that it can lead to overwhelm. I always love staying on the forefront of new strategies, so my visual schedules have evolved over 2 decades. I love sharing my passion for visual schedules!
