Do you remember forgetting your PE kit for school or forgetting your homework yet again? The worry that you will get punished, made to do lines or even put on detention. Kids do so many activities at school now, P.E, music practise, cooking lessons, swimming. It is so hard to remember everything they need to bring.
I am dyslexic, so get easily confused, sending my little girl to school in uniform on P.E day. When children are younger it is up to the parents to get the child organised. Now my little girl is getting older, I wanted to help her become more independent. Like me she is dyslexic and struggles with organisation. To help her we made a picture time table together, to help her remember what she needs to bring to school and when.

Top Tips from Dyslexic Mum
Use the “School Time-table” card to make a picture time-table. Below are tips about how to use the card to best help the child.
Match Pictures to Subjects - If the child has music on Monday, write on the time-table music. Then draw a picture of a musical instrument.
Decorate Time-table - Use stickers, pictures from magazine on the timetable. Allow the child to decorate, adding a patterned border.
Colour Code Days - Make each day of the week a different colour. For example write Tuesday in blue and Thursday in Orange.
Keep on Display - Look at the time-table everyday and pack their school bag for the next day. Keep it on display at all times, have more than one copy on the fridge, at the front door or next to bed.
