Free Printable 2012 Calendars | January

Print a calendar fast. Select a month, click print, that's it. Oh, and it's free.  I love monthly calendars as a  VISUAL SUPPORT for ALL children (people). It is not necessary to know the days of the week or months of the year.  I love the monthly calendar for talking about 'out of the ordinary' events Before, During, and After.  A monthly calendar can show that an event will happen soon, in a short time or in a long time.  You know it is important to someone when they start adding events (if they can write- like a trip to Disney, or stick a picture symbol/word on the calendar). The information is also important to them if they re-arrange desired vs undesired event.  Helps as well with repetitive questions/comments about when an event is going to happen because they can be re-directed to the calendar.
