Come to 'see' how to use visuals more effectively

Visuals – Every report seems to suggest the use of visuals to support students but this is a relatively broad suggestion and sometimes misunderstood or even undervalued.  This session is a perfect mix of theory and practical ideas on the how and why we can use visuals for students.  There are many aspects of using visuals that we don’t always consider when looking to implement and support students’ independence with this strategy.  There are three main categories that are each explained in detail:  visuals, visual schedules and visual boundaries. This presentation comes out of autism related research but is applicable for many learners.
