Visual supports can be used to enhance the understanding of children with a range of SEND or communication needs including autism or English as an additional language. Symbols can convey meaning in a quick and easy way and can be used as a method of communication as well as a tool for developing and understanding language. They are adaptable, portable and can be used in most situations.
Visual supports can help to provide structure and routine, encourage independence, build confidence, improve understanding, avoid frustration and anxiety, and provide opportunities to interact with others. They can make communication physical and consistent, rather than fleeting and inconsistent like spoken words can be.
In this workshop, Widgit will show you how to create visual supports using the InPrint 3 and Widgit Online software titles and Steph will explain how to use visuals as an effective tool both in school and at home.
