Visual Supports-UPDATED 6/2/15 Visual Supports

“If you’ve told a child a thousand times and he still does not understand,
then it is not the child who is the slow learner.
” 

Attributed to Walter Barbee

Because of this, we often find ourselves "bombarding" them with verbal instructions and/or information, with minimal success.  Use of visual supports reduces this verbal input, and allows them to view the instructions or information as long as necessary. 

“Visual supports organize a sequence of events, enhancing the student’s ability to understand, anticipate and participate in those events.

Visual supports supplement verbal instruction, clarifying the information for the student and increasing comprehension.

Visual supports can be used to cue communication, providing reminders of what to do and say in a situation."

Quill 1995
