Visual supports make auditory information visual by organizing a sequence of events, enhancing the individual’s ability to understand, anticipate and participate in those events. Visual supports supplement verbal instruction, clarifying the information for the individual to increase comprehension. They can be used to cue communication, providing reminders of what to do and say in a situation.
When individuals with ASD are given the opportunity to learn with visual supports they may complete tasks with more independence, learn new information at a faster pace and experience lower levels of frustration and anxiety.
Come learn how this can be successfully implemented in your classroom!
