New PECS Schedules

Last night Alex's Mommy and Sister came to visit. Since they were here and they are here enough to not be a special occasion, there's nothing interrupting our routine. I won't allow it. at 7, we start our lists and that's that. and since she's here enough to be one of the crew... grab a dry erase marker and hop in line, Girl.

She went right along with Goofy and the Little D and did "her" list just the same. Then Mommy's all "I want one of those!" and I'm like "Noooooooo!" It's such a pain in the ass, man! The way I was doing it you had to make a list of a routine, find this picture here, that picture there, blahblahblah. cut, paste, this program, that program... not something I'm looking forward to. but, they left, I hopped online and luckily got distracted by facebook- yeah! This time it was a good thing because Twingle Mami in Autismland posted about this other program called Picto Selector (facebook). I went, I checked it out, and LOOK!!!

   I LOVE IT!!! One program, all the PECS you could ever need. awesome. I haven't played around enough to figure out how to give them a space to mark it as done but I figure for now, they can just X the plastic covered paper. and, I haven't figured out how to label the PECS with the simple words I want BUT, it was so easy! Just download, make the schedule and print!

***If you don't want to go through all of that and one of these fit your needs, just right click the picture, "save as" and print it out.

  2. First of all, that looks amazing. Second of all, if I understand right "mommy" is your ex husband's wife? If so, I wanted to say, you regard her so well. Except for occasional, understandable frustration, you two seem to treat each other like family. That's amazing.

    1. Yes, she's Alex's step-mom. It took a lot of years and a lot of crap to get to this point but, he loves her. She's important to him so it's either accept it as it is or spend the rest of my life fighting a losing battle and risk hurting Alex in the process :)
