Choice and transition planning, so necessary for students with ASD, can benefit many other learners as well. Bee Visual has developed two apps that are helpful for keeping children organized and on track: Choice Works and Choice Works Calendar. As a parent who likes to foster a sense of routine and security in her children's lives, I appreciated the fun and fairly easy-to-use interface that Choice Works offers. In particular, I liked the fact that their calendar app and menu items can be customized, either by labeling an already-existing stock image, or by choosing a photo from the photo library on one's device, or even by taking a photo on the spot.
I quickly used this app to build monthly schedules for May - September, which I then shared with Alex and Simon's dad as a .jpg file via email, and with the boys themselves, since both their devices have the same app (so files created on one device can be shared with and opened by others who have the same app, directly in Choice Works Calendar, on their own device).
Another thing I appreciate about this app is that one can create a monthly calendar, but then view "week at a glance", as in the first image below. This is helpful for chunking information for kids who need smaller bits rather than the big picture (you can even view one day at a time, useful when you have more than two items per day, which can be a bit overwhelming in the monthly view -- in our case, I kept the calendar mainly to who was sleeping where and when, just an overview).
Overall, I think Choice Works Calendar is a useful app for parents and teachers working with students who have ASD, as well as for anyone who wants to support their child in getting organized. It's a great visual organizational tool with lots of potential.
