Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) learn in a variety of different ways, but research has shown that they demonstrate strength in visual learning. To play on this strength, parents and professionals have developed visual supports for individuals with ASD. Visual supports organize a sequence of events, enhancing the student's ability to understand, anticipate, and participate in those events. This module will define visual supports, discuss how they might be used across settings, and provide specific examples that can be used to accommodate individuals with ASD.
