We Help People And Families Affected By Autism

Visual Supports and Programs

Our goal is to provide the structures and supports that each individual needs to have successful experiences at home and in the community, explore new activities, and make gains in independence.

Visual Supports

Visual supports are often used with individuals who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They can help communicate better with the individual and they help individuals at school, at home, at work and in the community. People on the autism spectrum often learn best using visual supports. Seeing it, rather than saying it can be beneficial.

Visuals supports can be pictures, objects, sign language or text. They can come in a variety of forms.

If you would like to request additional visuals specific to your needs, we have a Visuals Request Form for your use.  Please fill out the form and send it to volunteers@delautism.org.

Use visual supports:

Create daily/weekly schedules with visual blocks of time

-Show sequential steps in a task such as a bedtime routine or getting dressed

-Demonstrate units of time

-Make a “to do” list

-Aid communication

-Offer choices

At-Home & Community Programming

Autism Delaware has developed a series of activities that can be done in the home or in the Delaware community. Each activity includes a parent/caregiver worksheet, video explanation of the project or activity and visual supports. Join other families across Delaware in some fun science, cooking, crafts and scavenger hunts specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with autism and their families!
