Hello,

Working with children with autism can be a challenge, therefore visual symbols and timetables can always be great to help your child in school and out of school. Visual symbols can keep problems small and reduce outbursts.

Social stories are also a great help to many child, they can help concur everyday problems. However we all know how time consuming these things can be to make and often how confusing they are when you do not know how to get started on writing one!!

Anyone else find these sorts of problems?

www.asdvisualaids.com is a website where all of these fantastic resources can be brought to use at home or in school. This will save all of the time of making visual symbols and social stories. It will also help improve your child’s communication skills!!

Take a look for more info
