First-Then visual schedule is an affordable user-friendly mobile application designed for caregivers to provide positive behavior support through the use of “visual schedules”. First-Then was designed for individuals with communication needs, developmental delays, autism spectrum disorders or anyone who would benefit from a structured environment.
First-Then allows schedules to be created “on the go” and customized to the needs of the individual. Schedules can be created to show daily events or steps need to complete a specific activity or daily events.
Use the app to show:
*Specific Steps to complete an activity
(ex: use the bathroom, make a sandwich, get dressed)
*Any activity that requires a transition.
“First Then gives you total control over visual schedules. I don't see how an app could do picture schedules on the iPhone any better”

"If you have a child with special communication needs, this is a great tool to engage them in the day-to-day routine and calm them when life gets a bit chaotic. Using visual cues, kids adn event adults can grasp a routine for hte day-gret for people that always need to know 'what's next?'."
Add custom images to your schedules by using the iPhone’s built in camera, the built in Internet image feature or download images from your personal computer and save onto the “camera roll” album for future use in other schedules.
Voice can be recorded and a message added to the images to help further reinforce schedule and to aid with receptive and expressive language acquisition.
