What is the theory behind the worksheet?

Having an established routine helps individuals on the autism spectrum manage anxiety and develop a sense of security.

Learning how to keep to a routine (that includes the possibility of change) from a young age will help your child feel safe, and regulated, and begin the life-long skill of keeping to a routine. Beginning to take on more responsibility regarding developing and managing the routine is a good way to continue building this skill.
