The anxiety and stress experienced during transitioning may be caused by not understanding when the next break or meal is coming. This can lead to individuals seeming distant and confused throughout the day because they can feel lost in time and sometimes slip into a type of survival mode. Time is an abstract concept for most individuals living on the spectrum. Clocks or clock print outs can help individuals understand when the important transition and events of the day need to happen. For some individuals this may be as simple as using a digital clock which is easier to read than an analogue clock. For others, they need a more detailed tool, such as the example below. These large laminated posters can be used at home, work and at school. Because they are laminated, it makes it easier to change the transitions illustrated.
