Autism & Visual Supports: Powerful Strategies for School, Home and the Community

Autism & Visual Supports: Powerful Strategies for School, Home and the Community

Location: Online Webinar
Time: 3/14/2019 3:00 PM

Because most students with Autism are visual learners, they benefit from the consistent use of customized visual supports. In this webinar, we will explore three categories of visual supports: Visual Instruction (adapting instruction so it is presented visually); Visual Organization (using visuals to organize activities and daily schedules), and Visual Expression (using visuals to facilitate expressive communication). We will examine how to effectively use visual supports in school, at home and in the community to optimize students’ participation in all aspects of their day. Learning objectives include:

  • Review visual supports that can be effectively used in the classroom
  • Examine real-life applications of visual supports (photos and videos), for use in the community and at home
  • Learn how to organize activities and transitions to promote students' success
  • Discuss the benefits of using Assistive Technology
  • Benefit from real-life examples, tips, strategies, and resources
  • Time will be provided for Question & Answer
