Provides options of planner views including day, week and months.
App also has inbuilt lists, task and notes sections.
Activities can have start and end times entered as well as alarm and repeats set.
Additional prompts can be added including photos taken in the app or from the gallery, maps, and symbols.
Notes can be added to the calendar pages using both typing and writing on the touch screen. Different fonts and colours can be used for the typed notes.

Please Consider

Adding an activity to the calendar can be difficult initially. It requires the user to double tap the screen, press the calendar icon then tap on the time the activity starts.
Entries on the calendar cannot be colour coded and are displayed as a simple start to end time format, rather than blocking out a block of time which may be visually easier to read for some people.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

The Organizer app may be a great long-term tool for some individuals with autism. To support independence the individual is likely to require support in using the app initially. Repeated demonstrations on how to add events to the calendar would be beneficial. Some additional visual supports to help the person learn the functions related to the symbols may also be useful.Ultimately the app may serve as a visual support for independent organisation.
