Autism, Visual Strategies and Life Skills. Visual strategies are widely used when living and working with children and young people with autism as they: 
•    Complement the learning style of many with autism. 
•    Can be introduced alongside other intervention strategies.  
•    Are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations. 
The use of visual strategies can have a notable impact on how a child with autism experiences life, as they help to clarify expectations and make abstract concepts more concrete. Visual strategies support children as they develop effective communication, appropriate social interaction, and positive behaviour skills.
Life Skills
This training will examine the broad definition of life skills, within the contexts of home, school, play and personal care, and how the core difficulties, associated with autism, directly affect the development of such skills. 
It will demonstrate how life skills can be improved and facilitated within the home and school environments. This will include increasing independence in family and classroom activities, the daily routines of the family home, the classroom, within play and personal care activities, e.g. toileting.
