Are you a Speech-Language Pathologist for children with autism?
Do you provide support for young children with autism or older students with autism or Asperger’s or related communication needs?
The Speech-Language Pathologist is an important leader in helping those who are communication partners of individuals with ASD to develop more effective communication with those students.
Sometimes the most important role for the SLP is to help parents, teachers and other support staff understand how visual strategies can be powerful tools for helping their students achieve success as they participate in their life activities and opportunities.
- models using visual strategies successfully
- helps communication partners create communication environments (using visual strategies) where students can learn effectively
- supports students with autism & related communication needs to achieve success with the use of visual aids
Check out these resources to build your own knowledge, but also as tools to share with the communication partners of your students.
Are you the teacher or therapist or other support person for a student with an Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Having a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in your classroom or on your caseload can be pretty frustrating when things don’t go well. It doesn’t have to be that way though. You can build a simple but effective visual support system in a very short time to engineer your classroom or therapy room for student success.
You’ll be relieved when your students with autism manage situations without the meltdowns or problems that have occurred in the past. And you’ll feel confident using visual strategies as a foundation for all your classroom or therapy activities.
Whether you work with a newly diagnosed young child or you have students who are older but still experience communication or behavior difficulties, engineering an environment stressing a visual strategies framework will support your students so they can participate successfully in their learning opportunities.
