These are portable visual communication cards for teachers to use to effectively communicate everyday classroom directives/expectations to students with autism, hearing impaired and speech language deficits.
Students with autism or auditory processing disorders often find it difficult to accurately and fluently process and follow verbal directives. The use of visuals helps assist these students to understand teacher directives and classroom/behavioral expectations.
Provided in this packet are 26 different visual cues in 2 different sizes (4.75in x 4.25in, and 3.25in x3in) to aid portability. Each visual has a labeled tab to make each directive easy to find. Additionally each visual has a different colored border in order to further aid visual discrimination.
