Visuals for ABA-Based Practice
Visuals are used to help individuals who have a difficulty understanding or using language to communicate.
What are the benefits of using visual supports?
Beneficial for people who are nonverbal or have a limited vocabulary. These visuals aren’t simply for conversations either. They are useful to help individuals make choices, create schedules, complete daily tasks, and understand specific concepts like time. This is no different than others that rely on calendars, recipes, or to-do lists that help us remember details or plans.
These visuals create predictability, reducing overall frustration. In addition, visuals assist in promoting independence and allow clients to feel more involved with daily activities as well as better express their thoughts and move through transitions.
