About the Author

Dr. Marlene Cohen is the Department Chair for ABA Online for The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She has over 35 years of experience working with individuals with autism and other disabilities.

Dr. Peter Gerhardt has over 30 years experience utilizing ABA principles with adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorders in educational, employment, residential and community-based settings.

Visual supports—any pictorial, graphic, or scheduling aid—are excellent tools for teaching academic, daily living, and self-help skills to people with autism. This reader-friendly and practical book shows teachers, parents, and service providers how to make low-tech visual supports, and offers strategies for using them.

The second edition includes expanded information about using visual supports with the youngest children, advice on fading supports, and updated photo examples of:

  • activity schedules
  • calendars
  • charts
  • checklists & to-do lists
  • color coding
  • flip books
  • graphic organizers
  • mnemonics
  • nametags
  • photo boards
  • Power Cards
  • scripts
  • Social Stories
  • video modeling
A new chapter covers high-tech options for visual supports (iPads, smartphones, etc.) and how to choose appropriate ones, and particular features that are good for people with autism.
