Autism and Visual Supports in our house, go hand in hand. Both my boys rely heavily on Visual Supports to help them understand the world around them.
I have recently started to “Home School” my two boys in the evenings and at weekends, and in doing so I created some new Visual Supports to help them. Conor my oldest son (he is 8 and has an intellectual disability), uses a Token Board system to earn “treats” or to go on excursions etc. I decided before I started trying to Home School Conor I knew I need some new Visual Supports including a Token Board with “Thumbs Up” as the token.
He thinks Thumbs Up are really funny and positive, so I used those when creating his Token Board.
I shared the post online over on my FACEBOOK page with readers and wondered if they would find a FREE Printable Bonus pack useful. The response was a resounding YES! SO I created additional Visuals Supports for FREE Download.
I created some First and Then Boards, various Visual Schedules, Choice Boards and also a Board to be used with an IPAD or another electronic where you give your child a time limit. The Visual I created means your child can see exactly how long they have to use it etc I have found it so helpful with Conor in particular, as he obsessed with his IPAD and I am actively trying to wean him off of using it.
