Autism, Learning Style, and Visual Teaching Methods
Visual strategies are often seen as the baseline for learning support strategies as they:
• Complement the learning style of many autistic children, young people, and adults.
• Can be introduced alongside other methodologies.
• Are adaptable, portable and can be used flexibly across environments.
The use of visual strategies can have a positive impact on how an autistic child experiences family, community, and school life. This session will address why visual teaching methods work. Delegates be more able to adapt the school or family environment and individualised activities in order, to enhance learning, play or leisure, academic and life skills.
The audience will:
Understand how visual strategies support the learning style of autistic children and young people
Understand how visual supports may improve the learning experience in school, home and wider community.
Learn how to develop visual supports and implement visual strategies in a practical manner.
