Hi there! I am new to the group. My son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with Aspberger's at the end of his preschool year although I was positive we were dealing with a form of high function autism for at least a year prior. He is now in Kindergarten and is struggling. I fought hard for them to put a paraprofessional in his room to aid the teacher and this week we finally got one for 3 hours a day. So I am praying that school starts to go a bit easier for him. My question is how does one put a kid on a visual schedule at home. I have four other children and our day is very hectic most times. I wondered how detailed I should be. I want to allow for some flexability but I am having a hard time just organizing it and starting it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have Boardmaker installed but I have no idea how to use it. I think this would be good for him while he is at home but I am at a lost...HELP:) Thanks. Also I want to give him some responsibilities at home but I am not sure what would be good for him. Man...this is my fourth kid...you think I would have it down by now.
