RESEARCH SUPPORTS VISUAL STRATEGIES
Visual supports have been investigated by a number of researchers for several decades. Read below what some of the researchers have to say about the use of visual strategies.
“visual supports help bring in structure, routine and sequence that many student/children with autism require in order to carry on their daily activities” (Rao & Gagie, 2006)
“visual supports, when implemented correctly, allow students with autism the freedom to engage in life, regardless of impairment” (Hodgdon, 2000)
“the more people with autism can be provided with visual cues, the better they will understand what they are supposed to do” (Dalryaple, 1989)
"visual supports decrease dependence on adult prompts and cues" (Ganz, 2007)
