how do visuals help?

When someone can see what is coming next they feel more calm and in control. Visuals can help because they:

• support routine and transition

• don't disappear like words do

• allow for processing time

• are universal across all languages

Who would benefit from visual communication?

Visual symbols can help anyone at all that struggles with verbal communication - either with speaking, or with understanding what is being communicated to them. This might be someone with autism, ADHD, Aspergers syndrome, dementia, stroke victims or very young children to name a few.

This person may benefit from visual communication if they:

• constantly ask what is happening and when

• struggle to transition from one activity to another

• don't like change

• struggle to make their wants, needs or feelings known.
