A visual cue, visual support, or visual strategy is a picture, graphic representation, or word used to prompt an individual regarding a rule, routine, task, or social response. You will learn about resources to help guide you in creating these tools.
Research has shown that when individuals with ASD are given the opportunity to learn with visual supports or cues they:
- Complete more tasks by themselves therefore increasing their independence
- Learn more rapidly
- Demonstrate decreased levels of frustration, anxiety, and aggression related to task completion
- Adjust more readily to changes in their environments (Koyama & Wang, 2011; Savner & Myles, 2000).
