Clean Room

There are too many steps for small children to process all at once when cleaning their room. Try breaking it down in small steps.

Here’s an example of a chart I did for my son. I took a picture of his messy bed then a picture of his bed made. I did this for every step of cleaning his room. I pasted these pictures on a black posterboard and attached it to the back of his door. With this visual method, he was able to do one task at a time instead of getting overwhelmed by the entire process.

  1. Thank you SO much for sharing this idea! My son has AS too & this will help TONS. As long as I can get him to use it…:|

  2. Great idea!
    I am familiar with the day routine cards, but this, with pictures similar to your boy’s own situation seem so much better! And two pictures show it all very clear: how it looks untidy and how it should look. Great!
    LOL…thinking of how it would work out on myself…nahhhh…guess I have just crossed the line of ever doing better 😛 😛

  3. love this! I have an ADHD child and this would help him stay focus. Borrowing the idea! Thanks!

  4. I love this idea…my oldest is autistic (high functioning). These types of visuals would work well for him. I would love more great ideas!
