Default Control journal for Children?

Has anyone ever made a control journal for their children? My 9yo daughter has Down syndrome and needs routines and visuals are a big help for her. We also homeschool.

I was thinking rather than making her charts for the wall. I could start her with a control journal and use pictures since she is not reading yet. Just a few routines and daily chores in thee for now. It would be something she could grow into and use for the rest of her life.

I would love to hear if anyone else has made one for their children. I am sure my 4yo will also want one good to get hi started too. My teen won't touch a planner even for his school stuff. No wonder he is often forgetting assignments.

Thanks.

I did not make a CJ for my son. I made a list that I put out for him every day. He marked off the chores, showed me the list & then tossed the list in the trash. LOL. I think he loved crossing off the stuff & tossing the list. He's kind of like your teen on the planner. But your nine year old may benefit from the journal / routine. It would definitely be something that can grow with her! I'd go for it. Never know unless ya try it.

I'd personally not call it a control journal...maybe something like DDName's Journal.



Let us know how it goes.

I agree with Melissa, I wouldn't call it a "Control Planner" either. I think your dd would probably love it more if she could personalize it too.

I wish this was a good answer for my 21 year old dd. But sadly part of the problem with Aspergers is the difficulty of maintaining routine, especially when routines mean there's no "ultimate goal" and maintenance is pretty senseless in her eyes (we are still working on this)

Good luck, it sounds like you have a great idea

Thanks! The behaviorist was super excited by this idea. She will be making pages and moveable pictures.

This will be her planner just like I use. I made pages for my classic size Franklin planner. That seems to be working pretty well for me so far this year.

I'll let you know how it goes. We won't be getting her materials until next month. I also need to find her a planner.
