Based on over 20 years of research the authors have conducted at the Princeton Child Development Institute, the second edition discusses the latest research that points to positive outcomes from using activity schedules, including better self-management, decreased problem behaviors, and skill generalization, among other findings. The new edition includes:
-How to use activity schedules to organize all aspects of a person's daily activities, and increase engagement, task completion, making appropriate choices, and sequencing activities;
-An expanded section on the use of activity schedules by adults, describing how they are used at home and in the workplace and via iPods and Blackberries;
-How to use activity schedules to promote social interaction and to teach children to point to and show objects to others in order to share a social experience.
