Research has consistently shown that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) tend to have an enhanced ability to process visual information compared to auditory information. Using visual supports can provide numerous advantages for children with autism, including:

Visual aids can help children better understand and follow instructions, routines, and expectations. They provide a concrete, visual representation of information that may be difficult to grasp through verbal language alone

Improved Communication  and Understanding

Visual schedules and visual task lists can help children with autism become more independent by guiding them through their daily routines and activities. This can reduce reliance on constant verbal prompting from adults

Increased Independence and Self-Management

These visual aids break down complex social scenarios into concrete, easy-to-understand components, allowing children to better interpret social cues and respond appropriately.

Reduced Anxiety and  Behavior Challenges
