Children with autism spectrum disorder and related conditions are generally visual thinkers and learners.
Meaning they can understand and relate to information easier when it is presented visually, rather than auditory or written.
ASD visual supports & Autism Social Skills Stories are designed in this manner to help children with autism spectrum disorder to communicate and learn social skills and behaviours.
ASD visual supports & Autism Social Skills Stories can be used by teachers to help them give information and instruction for example the Autism Social Skills Story can be used as a visual plan/breakdown of a skill or behaviour the child on the spectrum finds confusing or difficult such as making friends, going to the dentist, trying new foods and so on…
The teacher can use the Autism Social Story in the same way as parents to teach and to re-enforce already learnt behaviours, even to help with transitions or un-expected surprizes such as parties or visitors. ASD visual supports & Autism Social Stories help answer the “wh” questions – who, what, why. When and where as well as how
Presenting information in a visual manner help the child on the spectrum to understand and process information visually making the info much easier to recognise, remember and use.
ASD visual supports & Autism Social Skills Stories help the child on the spectrum interpret, understand and act appropriately.
ASD visual supports & Autism Social Stories can be used to help with communication issues with both verbal and nonverbal children with autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
