The Self Care Skills set can be used to create visual reminders for morning and bedtime routines, toileting, teeth brishing, washing, dressing etc. As each smaller step is mastered, use fewer or more general prompts to for each sequence, working towards using just one tag to cover the whole routine or time of day.
Most kids love stickers so let them join in the fun! Stick all the stickers you’ve chosen onto blank buttons. Involving children in the process of selecting stickers and setting up the tags will encourage them to engage in using the tags too.

When my son was born with autism, my world changed & Sensory Direct was born
Ethan had been prescribed different forms of medication, and although they helped a little, I didn’t want to become reliant upon them, so Ethan’s Paediatric Consultant suggested a Weighted Blanket. I remember hearing this and thinking ‘what on earth is a Weighted Blanket’? At this stage I was blissfully unaware of how life changing that Weighted Blanket would become.
