Monarch Visual Language Learning Program (VLLP)

Developed through an ongoing partnership with Harvard Medical School and Children’s Hospital Boston, the Monarch Visual Language Learning Program (VLLP) leverages autistic children’s strong visual processing and residual spoken language abilities to support communication, comprehension, language development, social skills and academic achievement. It is predicated on the careful, systematic, individualized introduction of language concepts accompanied by visual supports to help children with autism develop modes of communication - spoken, visual or written - that enable them to achieve their maximum potential as individuals and members of the community.

VLLP is philosophically neutral and can be used to complement and enhance the most effective and widely used techniques for treating individuals on the autism spectrum (e.g., ABA, TEACCH, Floor Time). Furthermore, it is concept-driven to ensure learning is generalized to multiple contexts (school, home, community).
