picturepath is a digital visual timeline for use by visual learners at home and school. It’s a portable, easy to use and fully customisable visual timeline that’s been developed by a team based out of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, with support from the National Autistic Society, child psychologists, Speech And Language Therapists, parents and SENCOs.
We understand that people with special educational needs can often feel overwhelmed by sudden changes to their daily routine. A clear, simple visual structure can help prepare for these changes and reduce anxiety levels.
You can choose an image from our activity library, create new activities and upload images from the internet or your device’s camera. You can break down activities into smaller, more detailed steps to provide the level of detail to suit your child. View the timeline as a whole, or show part of a day, or “now and next” - whatever works best for you. It can be shared between devices as well as between home and school so your child knows what to expect all through the day.
Save time when adding recurring activities to the timeline by creating routines, such as bedtime, getting ready for school etc. We want to save you time and reduce your child’s stress level. No more cutting, sticking and laminating!
