Making Visual Supports Work in the Home and Community:
Individuals with Autism and Asperger Syndrome

by Jennifer L. Savner & Brenda Smith Myles

Item: 9780967251462

Format: spiral bound
Pages: 35

Visual supports give children with autism and other pervasive developmental disorders more control of their environment with the result that they tend to be less frustrated and resort less to problem behaviours. This richly illustrated and user-friendly book provides parents with all the information they need to make effective visual supports specifically designed for their child using a variety of materials, many of them commonly found around the house. The authors’ commonsense approach takes into consideration that parents are usually stressed for time.
