Visuals can offer predictability and promote understanding even in the midst of a chaotic and uncertain time. Using a visual schedule, First/Then, or a visual reminder about the steps of a task can help orient someone to the next activity(ies) and provide a familiar routine. Offering choices, when possible, can also embed a sense of control during a time of crises. Choices can relate to HOW an activity is completed (e.g., wash your right hand or your left hand first) or WHAT is completed (eat your cracker or your fruit; sing this song or that song) even when there is little option for choice about the activities that must occur.
