What educators are saying

This is a fantastic resource to use during occupational therapy sessions. I highly recommend using these visual supports if you're providing school-based OT services.
There are many visuals for different activities included in this resource, and having them divided into different categories has been very helpful for organizing them! Thank you!

Do you work with preschool or elementary age children who are non-compliant, non-verbal, or have difficulty with attention? It can be difficult to create the structure and flexibility one needs to make sure every treatment session is joyful and productive. I have found visual supports to be an extremely helpful tool that immediately improves engagement and ensures that treatment sessions are effective. Visual supports include task cards to be used for a variety of settings including clinic, itinerant, and classroom situations.

I have used this system with countless children who have Autism, Emotional Behavioral Disturbance, Intellectual Disabilities, ADHD, Anxiety Disorder, Communication Disabilities, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and more. These children, who typically are not yet fluent readers, can often follow personal picture prompts with greater ease and independence than they can respond to verbal directions or even classroom visuals. Task cards included in this resource have color-coded frames by area of treatment so that you can easily keep your visuals organized and easily find the individual treatment tasks you want to use. Both photos and clip art are used. Here is a link to a blog post with classroom pictures.
