The Power of Visual Support in Children’s Development
Visual supports are not just colorful additions to your child’s routine – they are key elements in enhancing learning and communication for children who need them. As simple as these tools may seem, they play a crucial role in fostering independence, increasing comprehension, reducing anxiety, and improving behavior and social interactions.
“Visual supports often help individuals with autism and others who struggle with language, organization, or memory, understand and use language in more meaningful ways.”
Patricia Prelock, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, 2012 President of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
In fact, a study published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders found that visual supports significantly improve the ability of children with autism to complete daily tasks.
