Teaching Strategies in Children with ASD
Teaching strategies in children with ASD takes into account the cognitive and sensory processing difficulties specific to autism spectrum disorder. Visual strategies are an effective alternative to the classical approach, through verbal instructions thus facilitating the association of instructions with their specific meaning.
The use of visual strategies is done in different stages and teaching contexts, such as: carrying out instructions, understanding the quantity, carrying out activities with multiple stages, expressing through sentences, understanding temporality etc. We will discuss about the types of visual strategies in the teaching-learning process, and about their adaptation according to the child’s processing difficulties.
