is Simon's Who What Where sheet.
This sheet was developed over a couple of sessions, with our consultant, Nola Marriner, Ph.D. This sheet is done with Simon in the morning. It is used to encourage a conversation of sorts. His part of the conversation may only be, yes, no, or another single word. It is used to help Simon know what will happen in a day. It is used when a day may be particularly difficult for Simon. He can say what he wants, I can say what I want...
and Simon is apt to be more flexible. Simon can also tell me what is coming next when I ask him. On Simon's worst day, he can still participate in this activity.
end of the day, Simon types from his Who What Where sheet using Write Out
Loud. These two sheets together, make up Simon's journal.
Simon is currently using Writing With Symbols 2000 from Mayer-Johnson. He loves it, loves it, loves it. I cannot put in pictures fast enough. I must make two or more social stories a day with this software, it is very useful. Simon has also collected every single
Who What Where ever made and retyped them with WWS2000. I have six or seven full two inch binders!
This is Simon's schedule. I do not recommend keeping the icons in plastic containers with lids. Another board on the wall with the icons in sight and reach is more practical.
calendar for ACAP was made with Calendar Creator Plus.
Simon 'schedules' in a sequence kind of way. He can read a digital clock/watch now, and will pay attention to what time someone is coming, for instance. But for years, he worked on what comes next. He does not use the TEACCH 'all done' or 'finished', which is something useful for many.
