Discovering the Possibilities with Visual Strategies
While many people use a few visual tools in their homes and education environments, few use visual communication supports nearly as much as these students need.
This program will demonstrate how and why to expand your use of visual supports. The use of visual strategies is effective across skill levels, for students from early childhood through adult.
Visual strategies work for verbal and nonverbal students. Children with high or low skills benefit from visual supports designed to match their capability.
Numerous systems and strategies will be presented that can significantly improve communication, social interaction, behavior and participating in life opportunities.
Participants will learn to:
- Identify significant factors in student learning and functioning style that affect communication.
- Informally assess the student’s communication strengths and challenges.
- Recognize situations where communication breakdowns can affect the student’s understanding, behavior and participation in social opportunities.
- Develop visual tools to support communication, behavior & social skills
Content of this program can be adjusted to meet program timing needs.
