Is It Any Good?

Though the learning curve for using Visual Schedule Planner is steep, especially for younger users, the depth it provides for daily activities may be helpful. Every activity can be visually represented on the daily, weekly, or monthly calendars. Larger activities can be broken down into smaller tasks and can include graphic, video, and/or audio input. When a user is creating a detailed Activity Schedule in Visual Schedule Planner on the iPad, the keyboard will overlap some of the areas you'll want to type in. Also, the image library is not searchable: Users must scroll through the images alphabetically.  For kids who are easily overwhelmed by visual stimuli, many of the screens may be too busy to be beneficial.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
