A recent article published by: Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, suggested using a form of visual schedule to "clarify life and create predictability". For the autistic child or adult, life can change daily or hourly causing some individuals to become easily frustrated or confused. With the help of a visual aide, life can be a bit more predictable. Good Karma Applications offers a customizable visual schedule with many features to include: video modeling, choice boards, share via dropbox or even a print option.

Good Karma Apps version of the visuals provided in the article above:
Here we have an option to goto the beach if it's a "sunny" day. But what happens when the sun is not shining? Having two weather related options can be made with our First Then Visual Schedule HD App.
If the day is "sunny" after looking outside or on a weather app the viewer taps the sunny day and gets a choice board* list of items to gather for a day at the beach.
If the day is "cloudy" the viewer has alternative options. Once you choose the activity from the choice board, it will then populate the schedule with that choice.
* You can also make a video version and attach to the scheduled event.
First Then Visual Schedule HD is available in the Apple App store:
