Simple to-do chart

Charts and lists are what makes our world go round here. Nothing seems to get done if it's not written down.

The kids have their daily checklists, which work great most of the time.

But with autism comes processing challenges. Sometimes when his brain is overwhelmed he has a hard time processing more than one instruction at a time. Just looking at a long list of things to do can cause him toe shut down.

So this is a very simple little tool I use occasionally to help him. Instead of everything on one piece of paper, I write them on individual post-it notes. Then I can give him one note at a time and send him off to do that thing. He brings the note back to me when it's done, and I give him the next one.
