DOWNLOAD | Student Class Task Planner

The aim of this planner is to help students who struggle with planning, prioritising and organisation (executive function skills) to be able to engage well in class. This is a frequent issue for autistic students and those with ADHD. It is often the case that these students are unable to demonstrate their brilliant ideas, opinions and knowledge as the tasks get in the way.


This task planner was created with secondary students in mind, and whilst staff might choose to pre-populate bits for the student, the aim is to empower them to take control of their own learning.

This could be used for class work or homework. A potential pitfall would be children spending a long time completing the planning and not moving on to the task in good time so it might be sensible to set a time limit on it.

Huge thanks to my daughters Lyra and Ellie who co-designed version one of this with me (and are now using it) and to the good people of twitter who fed back on many versions to get to this one. I hope it’s helpful!
