See what's next
Routinely is an easy and fun way to build visual schedules on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad*. Children with developmental delays or other special needs feel comforted by knowing what comes next. Routinely helps by associating expectations with visual cues. This gives caregivers a useful tool for aiding those in their care to progress through a series of actions, choose an activity, and know when to move on to something else.
Routinely provides all of this in a bright and beautiful interface for just $4.99.
* We are actively working on full iPad support for a future update.
Fun, colorful illustrations
Routinely comes with a built-in set of illustrations for common activities you would do at home, at school, or while you’re out and about.
Use any photo you want
Easily take photos of anything you want or use any picture in your photo library to add a touch of familiarity to your routines.
Choices make picking activities easy
Routinely lets you present activities with up to four choices when you want to give your children the autonomy to pick something they want to do.
Add timers to any activity
Want to limit screen time or make sure teeth get brushed for two minutes? Add a timer to easily keep track of how much time is left.
Don’t worry about accidental edits
You don’t have to worry about curious children deleting their routines. A simple lock code will protect your data and make progressing though your routines easy.
Share with anyone
Children are typically under the care of parents, teachers, and other caretakers throughout their day. Routinely lets you share any routine or imported photo so you can add consistency to your child’s day.
About Visual Routines
Provide structure and predictability with a visual routine
Visual routines (or visual schedules) are a tool that combines a visual cue with an activity. Children of all types benefit greatly from structure and value knowing what is expected and what is coming next. In particular, children who have attention, behavioral, or cognitive challenges can benefit from having common routines represented visually. Caregivers of individuals who are autistic, have ADHD, Down syndrome, or just have difficulty staying on task or transitioning can benefit by incorporating visual routines into their daily activities.
Traditional visual routines are difficult to incorporate into a child’s day to day activities. Traditional poster board schedules take a considerable amount of time to prepare and maintain. Apps such as Routinely make it much easier to make visual routines a normal part of our children’s lives. You can quickly get the pictures you need and have routines available at any time.
