Visual Support Tools

Communication issues are very common in Autism. There various treatments for autism available that can help

Such as:

  • Picture Communication Cards
  • Flash Cards
  • Now and Next Boards
  • Visual Schedules
  • And So On...
  • Now and Next Boards



    A now and next board is used to help the child with autism visually see what the present task is and what is to follow.

    The now and next board can also be used as a reward chart, for example: if the present task is completed the next option can be a treat.

    Visual Schedules

    Children with autism spectrum disorder like routines and to know exactly what is going to happen at all times they DO NOT like changes or suprises.

    A visual schedule is used to show what is going to happen and the order of events.

    Small square laminated images are used on the visual schedule (like the one opposite) to show what is happening now and next.
