What People are Saying.
Love these visuals and the kids love them too. So many different ways to incorporate the resource into a session. We especially love the option to have the visuals on lolly pop sticks. Perfect used alongside the nursery rhyme. So many targets !
One of the best Presenters & Trainers I have ever listened to speak about what it is actually like to be autistic and what a visual mind can look like. The absolute best Autism Course I have ever attended over the last 7 years and I have been to a lot of courses and presentations on Autism.
The Visual Supports Webinar has taught me how to connect with my son and understand how his mind may process information visually. I started to implement the strategies you recommended and already I see huge progress in his understanding of expectations but also in our own relationship, he is calmer and happier.
This has been a huge hit in clinic during my speech and language therapy sessions. It is easy to prepare and comes with different colour options. The ability to imitate actions is a precursor to learning language and is often a difficulty for children with autism. It in incorporates movement into the learning and also includes sequencing when the child is able to move that level. Another fantastic resource from Amanda.
