What are Autism Visual Supports?
Visual supports are a visual form of alternative communication.
Visual Supports are tools and materials that use visual information to prepare and support the Autistic individual by enhancing communication and comprehension.
Visual Supports empower, support and prepare the Autistic individual to build independence, predictability and familiarity in their daily lives.
Visual supports can present information in multimedia formats including but not limited to:
- real objects
- true object based icons
- colour symbols
- line drawings
to send and receive messages.
