“A parent was asked to share the most helpful thing that she had tried with her son with Autism. She replied that a visual schedule has been the key to increasing his independence and managing his anxiety.”

What are visual supports?
VISUAL SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM
Let’s think of visual support as anything that can help any of us get things done, or feel better just by looking at it. Adults can use written information on a calendar to help them plan and manage their day or their entire year. Just like these visual strategies help the life of many adults, children with autism have shown to greatly benefit from a variety of visual support materials. There are a variety of visual support materials that can be created by parents to help children at home. Some of these visual support are called visual schedules, which can tell children what will happen next. Some visual support can also be used to help children understand the world around them and communicate using a picture exchange system. Here are some reasons to use visual support for children with autism:
“Faherty (2000) has suggested that visual schedules may be more important to use at home than at school.”
