Visual Supports

Visual supports are an effective research-based practice of using concrete items, pictures, symbols or printed words and/or a combination of these. These supports may assist children in their ability to maintain attention, understand spoken language and sequence and organize their environment.

The type of visual support used should be dependent on the child’s abilities and are proactive (before a situation occurs) strategies that may increase appropriate behaviours/skills or decrease challenging behaviours.
