Importance of Visual Supports in Therapy, the Classroom and at Home

 As an SLP who works with young children with significant communication needs, the topic of visuals is one that I continually re-visit throughout the school year.  Everyone’s definition of “visuals” may be (and probably is) slightly different.  Here is mine.  Visuals are objects, pictures or written words that helps a child understand their environment and live more successfully in it.  They are not communication books but, at times, may be used by a child to express themselves.  I will be talking about the classroom but really they can be used anywhere!
