#WorldAutismMonth: Visual Aid

When she got tested and received her diagnosis at 6(there was a waitlist), they discovered how visual she is. 1 of the tools they told us is to draw her routine. My children did not get their artistic🎨side from me 😂. I tried but my son did better👍(📸2)

To further explain: 1 is “do this first” then 2 is you can “do this next.” She needed to visualize step-by-step before she can have maybe a treat(cake pop) or do something she likes which was play w/ iPad or Paint. As she grew older we’ve moved on from the literal visual board but we still need to tell her each step. With her IEP at school, she gets Lesson Notes so she’s able to catch up and do her tasks as she follows instructions. It’s all in the details which I first wrote about here.
