Free Time Choice Board Visual Support for Autism and SEN


Choice board to support a child in choosing what they would like to do during free time or choosing time.


Why do you need this?

A choice board is a visual support that can be used to communicate what choice a child, who finds it otherwise difficult to communicate, would like to make. The use of choice boards can increase a child’s motivation to participate in school giving them a sense of control. Choice boards provide children with autonomy, engagement and personalised learning.


How and when might you use this?

This choice board allows children to select from a range of free choice activities such as dressing up, outside play, lego or trains set. This empowers children to choose strategies that work best for them.


By giving them agency over their choices, the choice board promotes independence, self-regulation, and decision-making skills.


Although there are 8 spaces for choices on the board you can use it to put in as little as two options depending on the child and their needs. There are 12 different choice cards so that again you can tailor which you put on the board according to the child.


What’s included?

Included is a choice board and then 12 different choice cards.
