Linda Hodgdon: Use Visual Strategies for Autism


Students on the autism spectrum (and a lot of other students, too) frequently have challenges or behavior difficulties because they don’t understand their world very well.

Because they are easily frustrated and regularly misunderstood, their behavior is often not like other students.

Sometimes they do not understand how to do what other students do. Sometimes they try to control the world using behaviors and strategies other students don’t usually need to use.

When trying to sort this out, we have discovered that most of these students understand what they see better than what they hear.  They are visual learners.

Membership is needed.
