Most students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), such as Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and related communication challenges, are visual learners. The use of visual strategies, including a range of low tech to high tech like iPads and Apps, capitalizes on their strengths and alters many communication and behavior difficulties related to time, travel and transition. This course defines the need and demonstrates practical examples for helping students participate successfully in life opportunities.
