3 Steps to Overcome Behavior Challenges in
Autism with Visual Strategies
What are visual strategies for autism?
Students on the autism spectrum (and a lot of other students, too) frequently have challenges or behavior difficulties because they don’t understand their world very well.
Because they are easily frustrated and regularly misunderstood, their behavior is often not like other students.
Sometimes they do not understand how to do what other students do. Sometimes they try to control the world using behaviors and strategies other students don’t usually need to use.
When trying to sort this out, we have discovered that most of these students understand what they see better than what they hear. They are visual learners.
They tend to be visual learners living in an auditory world
That’s why they respond so well when we use visual strategies.
You can call them visual strategies, visual tools or visual supports, but what they are is visual cues that help students understand better.
Visual strategies work! They help improve communication, prevent problems and guide students to participate successfully at home and school.
