Visual supports are critical in meeting the needs of young students with disabilities. This session will explore the benefits of using visuals to improve social-emotional, behavioral, learning, and communication skills in young children. We will examine best practices in using a range of visual supports in the early childhood classroom and in homes, including first/then boards, visual schedules, token economies, and social stories. Learn about both high-tech and low-tech visual supports including print materials, hands-on kinesthetic materials, and digital tools. Participants will learn specific strategies for integrating visual supports into classroom or home routines as a part of a positive behavior intervention system and as a part of an individual behavior intervention plan.
Learner Outcomes - Participants will be able to:
- Identify 3 evidence-based visual support strategies.
- List 5 resources for finding or creating visual supports.
- Identify classroom and home routines that are enhanced by the use of visual supports.
