Why use visual timetables?

16th December 2022 - by Catherine Nicholls


What a great article by Karen McInnes for the TES magazine. It sums up the reasons why visual timetables are so valuable – the very same reasons we created EaseeDo; a visual tool to increase independence and reduce anxiety from childhood into adulthood. A win-win!

Visuals are everywhere. When we think about visual timetables we tend to think about people who need extra support, and for them, they can be invaluable. However, we all rely on visuals! Try finding the information desk at an airport or train station in another country where you don’t speak the language – it’s made much easier to look out for the visual signs showing where to go. Pictures really do paint a thousand words.
