The website www.mrsriley.com was created so that anyone - parents, therapists, teachers - could create and print picture cards from any online computer for a multitude of purposes. So user friendly, here are some of the things I have done with materials I have created at this site:
- Teach a new self-help skill
- Make a visual schedule to establish a daily routine
- Make a visual schedule to aid in transitions
- Illustrate a social story
- Make a communication notebook
- Make a picture card strip for therapy sessions
You have the option of uploading your own pictures, choosing pictures from Mrs. Riley's database, using pictures other users have shared with the database, or finding pictures on the web. Drag and drop pictures into premade templates to make photo cards, symbol cards, and text cards. Templates come in many sizes and orientations, from 1 card to a page, to 20 cards to a page. Type text under the picture, or leave it blank. Print easily from any online computer.
Access to Mrs. Riley's requires a membership: $5 for one month, $15 for 4 months, $45 for a year. I renew my membership sporadically. Before renewing, I have all my pictures taken and my plans for what I want to make. Then I renew just long enough to make my materials, often for just one month at a time. There is a free 1 day membership so you can check it out. No credit card info, just an email address. Check that out here. https://mrsriley.com/subscribe And you can now even launch the Page Builder preview without any commitment. See it in action and search the database for images. You just won't be able to save or print. No risk or personal information exchanged, and you can check it out to see if it will be right for your needs before committing to a membership. Click on Launch Page Builder on step 1. https://mrsriley.com/subscribe It's an awesome tool!
