In addition, events that require more support can be linked to an “activity schedule” or “video clip” to help model the task even further.
Visual Planner is perfect for home, school, work or community environment. The app is designed for individuals who may benefit from visual support to ease transitions, anxiety, or who simply need a way to visually represent their day.

Overview of Features:

What's New in Version 2.8.1
Liked it at one time.
This app has a lot of great features. I like how it's pretty age neutral for my middle school students. However, they have taken off the "set a reminder" capability and this leaves it pretty useless to me. I'm working towards independence with my students and if I have to tell them to check their schedules, it's not helpful. If this is fixed I'll up my review to 4-5 stars. It can be tricky and a little time consuming to set up initially as well.
