Visual supports are a cornerstone for supporting autistic pupils. In this 90-minute workshop, we will explore what visual supports can be used for, how they fit into a busy classroom and how do you get started. You will also leave the session with read-to-print resources, so you can begin implementing strategies the following day!
This webinar is suitable for SNAs, teachers and learning support teachers at primary and post-primary level.
