Presenting information visually can be helpful to anybody. Think about the instructions that come with furniture. If the pictures are clear, what needs to happen is obvious. If the pictures are overcomplicated or too vague, it is almost impossible to follow them. Keep that in mind as you go about your search into the use of visuals and social skills instruction and you can get the maximum benefit for individuals learning social skills.

Notes: Step-by-step book shows parents and educators how to help change an unwanted or inappropriate behavior by capitalizing on the special interests that characterize children and youths with AS. A brief, motivational text related to a special interest or a highly admired person is combined with an illustration and made into a bookmark or business card sized power card that the youth can refer to whenever necessary. For younger children, the special interest or hero is worked into a brief story.
