About This Book
“Research has confirmed that in people with Autism, word based tasks are processed in the visual parts of the brain. So, if Confucius said ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ – it is certainly a maximum for the hundreds of thousands of students who are visual thinkers.
Lisa Rogers’ book ‘Visual Supports for Visual Thinkers’ makes a compelling case for taking these words of wisdom into the homes, classrooms and workplaces, where visual learners can often struggle with understanding.
Visual Supports can make the transient more tangible and ensure the information is processed with ease and speed. Lisa takes field-tested strategies and makes them easily accessible to the mainstream. By engaging with and implementing the strategies in this comprehensive book, you will be providing an illumination of light bulb moments for visual thinkers everywhere.
Just picture that if you can!”
-K.I. Al-Ghani, special education teacher and trainer, author of several books relating to special education for children and adults.
—For those interested in classroom interventions for people with ASD this book will be a delight. Lisa has a very down to earth and pragmatic way of presenting the basic intervention strategies… Her many vivid examples make the principles come alive and help the reader to understand them fully and their implementation in a way that few other books on this topic are able to do. If all this is not enough, beyond the basis, one also learns how each part of the intervention is connected to the other parts and what empirical research forms the foundation of what you are learning. All in all this is a great package that will inform, expand an d excite the reader with lots of new and exciting ways to better understand what they are doing and many fresh ideas for how to do it better.”
–From the foreword by Gary B Medibov, Professor Emeritus, University of North Carolina“Lisa Rogers helped me understand neurological stress! This book helped me plan out solutions for many students in my school, not just students with ASD. I want my new teachers to read this so that they will gain another perspective for all the kids in their classroom” –John Hinds, Principal, North East Independent School District, Texas
