Ep. 15: Becoming a Behaviour Detective

Visuals and Visual Supports

Session 3

Part 1: What are visual supports?

Visual supports are simple tools that can make a big difference when working with people who have communication difficulties. During this training, you will learn what are visual supports, why they are important, with whom they can be used and how to use them easily. 

Part 2: Visual Schedules

An image is worth a thousand words. Visual schedules can help people “see” what you mean, prepare for transitions, build autonomy and reduce anxiety. They can also work with many different ages and abilities. In this interactive workshop, you will learn and practice how to create and use visual schedules.
