How can you increase a persons self-reliance with visual routines?
By giving a person with intellectual disability access to their own visual routine they can check at any time and place what the activities are scheduled for that moment. This makes it possible to operate with less supervision by just following the visual routines.
The routines can be scheduled by a family member, professional caretaker or together with the person who is going to use them. Routines are automatically synchronized to a mobile phone or tablet.
The app wil also notify when new tasks and activities are due and help reminding to complete them using speech and notifications. By checking of completed tasks a person keeps track without supervision.
By adding additional instructions to the schedule you can help a person perform complex routines, by just following the steps in the routine. In this way you can use widely available technical aids like phones and tablets to enhance self-reliance!

In this way self esteem and self confidence is build; the person can do more things without direct help from a caretaker. The visual routine gives structure and support!

The use of visual routines and schedules are especially suited for people who need some extra help remembering and performing the daily activities.
