Jul 12, 2016: Discovering the Possibilities with Visual Strategies for Autism

Meeting the Communication, Behavior and Social Needs of Students with Special Learning Challenges presented by Linda Hodgdon, M.Ed., CCC-SLP, Constultant for Autism and Related Learning Needs.

Most Students with Autism, Asperger's and related learning needs are visual learners! This observation has tremendous implications.  Capitalizing on their strengths, the use of visual strategies alters many social, communication, and educational challenges.

This program will demonstrate effective ideas for using a range of low tech to high tech visual tools,including video and tablets like iPads and Apps, to help students organize their lives, reduce behavior problems, and improve student successful participation in life opportunities.  We will define the need, discuss training, and demonstrate many practical ideas for a range of ages and skill levels at home, in school and out in the community.
