2020 Adult AM Workshops
Visual Supports- How These Can Support Individuals with Various Abilities
During this workshop we will review what visual supports are and the most common types (e.g. first then board, visual schedule, social stories, choice boards, etc.) We will discuss how each of these can benefit individuals of all skill levels and how they can be implemented across environments. Additionally we will discuss how to make your own visuals and/or find pre-made visuals. The presenter will also open the floor to the audience to answer specific questions.
