Autism, Learning Style and the Impact of Visual Teaching Methods

Visual strategies are widely used when working and living with children and young people with autism as they:
• Complement the learning style of many with autism.
• Can be introduced alongside other intervention strategies.
• Are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations.
The use of visual strategies can have a notable impact on how a child with autism experiences school as they help to clarify expectations and make abstract concepts more concrete. Visual strategies support children as they develop effective communication, appropriate social interaction, and positive behaviour skills, as well as accessing the curriculum.
This session will consist of a combination of presentations and workshop-based activities. It will cover why visual teaching methods work. Professionals will become more familiar with how their input will reflect a sound evidence base and be more able to adapt the school environment and individualised tasks to meet the needs of the child, in order, to enhance learning, play/leisure skills and social interactions. These methods may help professionals provide consistent teaching methods.

Expected Outcomes

• Understand the importance of visual teaching methods in autism.

Develop some visual strategies that can be used to support pupils
