Bathroom Visual Picture Schedule Example

Here is a bathroom visual picture schedule used for our loved one with autism. This image is a reminder checklist of the main steps to use the bathroom and wash/dry hands at home and at school. This picture chart does not list all the small steps necessary to wash/dry hands since this is a mastered and generalized skill.
