We Help People And Families Affected By Autism

Visual Supports

Visual supports are often used with individuals who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They can help communicate better with the individual and they help individuals at school, at home, at work and in the community. People on the autism spectrum often learn best using visual supports. Seeing it, rather than saying it can be beneficial.

Visuals supports can be pictures, objects, sign language or text. They can come in a variety of forms.

 

Use visual supports:

 

Create daily/weekly schedules with visual blocks of time

Show sequential steps in a task such as a bedtime routine or getting dressed

Demonstrate units of time

Make a “to do” list

Aid communication

Offer choices

At-Home & Community Programming

Autism Delaware has developed a series of activities that can be done in the home or in the Delaware community. Each activity includes a parent/caregiver worksheet, video explanation of the project or activity and visual supports. Join other families across Delaware in some fun science, cooking, crafts and scavenger hunts specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with autism and their families!
