Reducing Visual Overload

We often think of our students with autism as being visual learners.We provide them with visual schedules and  visual prompts. In the school environment they may see attractive classroom displays and have to walk along bright, busy hallways.

For some students, however, too much visual information can cause sensory overload. They find it difficult to attend to tasks because they’re having to process too much visual information on the page or cards in front of them. Whether I’m creating math, language, or science resources I aim to design my resources with clear layouts and as few visual distractions as possible, in order to reduce the amount of visual information which students are required to process.

This FREE Visual Preference Cut & Paste will enable your students (who are readers) to tell you what their individual visual preferences are.
