Autism Visual Schedules for Community Based Instruction & Special Ed Field Trips



If you take students out into the community, it’s so important that we have more visual supports to support them than we do in familiar school environments.  These visuals are perfect for community-based instruction and field trips.  These mini-schedules or visual task analyses can help your students navigate tasks in the community more independently and allow you to fade out staff to help them do things on their own.


Field trips included in this pack of special education visuals:

  • Bowling
  • Library
  • Fast Food Restaurant
  • Coffee Shop
  • Sit-down Restaurant
  • Cafeteria
  • Movie Cinema
  • Theater
  • Zoo
  • Grocery Store
  • Shopping
  • Mini Golf
  • Sporting Event
  • I have also included blanks in PowerPoint to add your own!


For students in special education with autism or other disabilities, visual task analyses or mini-schedules can help them become more independent. This special education field trips set is designed to help students during community based instruction or field trips.


These could be used for a field trip for younger students or community-based instruction outings for older students. The visuals are ready to print, laminated (if preferred) and used without having to search for relevant visuals.  


Reasons to LOVE these autism visual schedules: 

❤️Your students will better understand expectations. 

❤️Your students will learn independence in completing common tasks. 

❤️Challenging behavior can be prevented.


Each of the special education visuals included has 5 unique backgrounds to match my schedule bundles from my store. Each file can be printed in different sizes so that you can adapt them to your students’ needs. Directions are included in this file and in a video.
