Autism Visual Supports

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 help him understand what learning activities at the table he has to complete before we are finished. From a meaningfulness perspective, I knew that Conor would understand what the thumbs up icon would mean.

He understands that “Thumbs Up” are 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 adores his IPAD and finds the transition from using the Ipad to Ipad “finished” time difficult.
