   Since these charts should reflect what you want them to do - its a pretty personal thing.  I don't know if any online resources might mimic your household situation.
   Basically, the charts are a reminder of the order of events that you want them to follow.  I would think that for your 4 year old it would have to almost use pictures as he doesn't read if I remember.
   Any chart like this should only be used as a reminder of the events that they should be following.  Do not use it for rewards or punishment.  It won't work.

   Thanks for the update.  Let me know how the ASD process goes.  Always kind of wondered how they do that.  But its really important to know what is going on because that way help - specific help - can be started.  Best wishes.
