Congratulations to Sam, Don, and Gillian on having their abstract accepted to IMFAR 2008: “Design of Interactive and Collaborative Visual Scheduling Systems”
Abstract: Visual schedules are effective tools for supporting children with autism in understanding, structuring, and predicting activities. However, visual schedules can be difficult and time-consuming for caregivers to employ effectively, because caregivers must ensure the visual aids match volatile schedules. Technology-enhanced visual schedules have the capabilities to ease both the use of these aids and the data collection of activities in classrooms.
