Visual Aids

Some children in School of the Holy Spirit use a Visual Aids.

In general Visual Aids are used with children who display no or limited functional speech and/or need visual supports.
Some of our teachers have had PECS training and use visuals as art of the daily structure in the classroom for schedules, timetables, first/then and other daily tasks.

Within the school, Visual Aids are generated through:

  • Concrete objects
  • Photographs
  • Boardmaker
  • Pics for PECS
  • Clicpart
  • Picture This
  • The Internet

The use of this system has been found to significantly reduce frustration and improve negative and disruptive behaviours, especially in many of our younger children.
