I know what to expect going shopping


Prepare for a shopping trip with a visual schedule that explains where you’re going, what you plan to  buy and how we’ll get there. Particularly when shopping for clothes and shoes, it’s good to know about what’s going to happen inside the shop too such as having to take off shoes, getting measured and trying new things on.

Bright lights, music playing and noisy crowds are all common triggers for sensory overload but using a visual list of emotions and feelings can help a child to express their issues and remember calming techniques. 

There are lots of behavioural and social expectations to remember where a visual support can be useful reminder; like holding someone’s hand and walking together, not shouting or touching things.
