Free Webinar: Visual Strategies for Individuals with Autism that Promote Success at School, at Home and in the Community

Pre-registration is required and available by clicking here.

Please join us on Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 3-4pm EST for a free webinar entitled "Visual Strategies for Individuals with Autism that Promote Success at School, at Home and in the Community," presented by Rebecca Remner, MS CCC-SLP (Director of Speech/Language Pathology at Monarch Center for Autism) and Lauren Williams, MA CCC-SLP (Assistive Technology Specialist at Monarch Center for Autism).

Overview:

The majority of students with Autism are visual learners. Consequently, they benefit from the consistent use of customized visual supports in three key areas: Visual Instruction (adapting instruction so it is presented visually); Visual Expression (using visuals to facilitate expressive communication); and Visual Organization (using visuals to organize activities and daily schedules).

Whether it is at school, at home or in the community, consistent use of visual supports helps promote success with academics, communication, social encounters, and participation in activities of daily living. Please join us for this free webinar and gain tips and strategies for:

  • Effectively using visual supports on a daily basis in the classroom
  • Real-life applications of visual supports for use at home and in the community
  • Effective approaches for organizing activities and transitions to provide students with the greatest opportunities for success
  • Time will be provided for Question and Answer
