    I just googled and found this (these are most commonly used as a treatment strategy for kids with autism so you will see it mostly in that area, but really most kids benefit). I just found this and will be downloading it and looking it over at work tomorrow, but it looks like a great free resource: http://www.autismspeaks.org/science/...isual-supports

    This is a book I have had access to at work and recommend to parents: http://www.amazon.com/Visual-Strateg...ef=pd_sim_b_22

    ETA: For my own students and what I tell parents is to take pictures and get a cheap laminator and some velcro. Photos are actually better than the icons/drawings you often see used - but the book and samples give a good idea of various ways to use them, and that book in particular focuses on the range of kids who can benefit from these types of supports. ADHD is one of the big groups who really benefit.
