Literacy for Visual Learners: Teaching Children with Learning Differences to Read, Write, and Communicate. Adele Devine, $49.95

This book takes a fresh look at approaches to teaching reading, writing and communication skills. It presents a wealth of innovative ideas specifically designed to support visual learners, including those with autism spectrum conditions and special educational needs.

Some children are more responsive to visual stimulation than spoken words, and this book shows how to engage these children in literacy lessons by using strategies that cover everything from the latest assistive technology to getting creative on a limited budget. There are tips for sharing stories with children who find it hard to sit still, supporting reluctant writers, enabling the pre-verbal child to answer questions and helping the child who never stops talking to develop listening skills. The strategies are supported by practical resources, examples and case studies, to show how to instil in children the confidence to create and share their thoughts.

This is a must-have resource for special education teachers and coordinators, as well as speech and language therapists, looking for new strategies for teaching literacy.

Outsmarting Explosive Behavior: a Visual System of Support and Intervention for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Judy Endow, Foreword by Brenda Smith Myles, $43.95

Outsmarting Explosive Behavior is a visual model designed to help decrease, and in some cases eliminate, explosive behavior. Using a train metaphor, the parent/facilitator and student identify triggers, design positive interventions to prevent the “anger” train from leaving the station and preventing a car from moving further down the line. The three-piece package contains:

  • a book for facilitators that explains the model
  • a large poster-size visual showing the train model with ready-made parts that can be personalized
  • a workbook for the individual with AS designed to draw out
  • the personalized interventions that will make the model work.

Though designed to encourage participation by the person with explosive behavior, positive results are seen even when the model is implemented on behalf of someone unable to actively participate, such as nonreaders.

A PICTURE'S WORTH is the PECS primer written by the developers of the Picture Exchange Communication System.

Thousands of people with autism and other disabilities have benefited from using PECS. The book's complete set of introductory lessons makes it easy for parents and therapists to get started using this low-tech strategy to help young children through adults develop effective communication skills!

The Secrets in Their Eyes: Transforming the Lives of People with Cognitive, Emotional, Learning, or Movement Disorders, or Autism by Changing the Visual Software of the Brain. Melvin Kaplan, $27.95

Vision therapy techniques can correct not only visual problems, but also cognitive, emotional and physical difficulties. Based on the pioneering work of Dr Melvin Kaplan, this research-based book explains the basis of vision therapy, who it can help, and the outcomes it can bring.

Visual perceptual problems can cause an array of difficulties, from reading and writing, to issues with balance, clumsiness, and tunnel vision. Severe symptoms can lead to a diagnosis of anxiety, depression, learning disability or even autism. In this groundbreaking book, Dr Kaplan shows how these symptoms point to interventions that change the way that the eyes process information, permanently counteracting visual deficits and impacting on behaviour. Case studies demonstrate how to plan and implement visual management programs according to a patient's symptoms, illustrating the wide range of life-changing results that vision therapy can achieve for people of all ages, regardless of severity of symptoms. Dr Kaplan also shares his expert knowledge of ambient yoked prisms - a tool that transforms light to alter visual stimulation, dramatically transforming perception and cognition.

This accessible book presents readers - including parents and families, clinicians, and other professionals working with individuals with visual perception problems — with a comprehensive introduction to the benefits and methods of vision therapy.

It then explains the process of making self-modeling videos from start to finish, including how to:

  • choose the behavior/skill to teach
  • conduct a task analysis
  • select and use camcorders and video software
  • storyboard video scenes
  • plan and shoot footage

  • edit and manipulate the footage

Visual Thinking Strategies for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders: the Language of Pictures. Ellyn Lucas Arwood, Carole Kaulitz & Mabel Brown, $36.95

Visuals of all kinds (photographs, checklists, line drawings, cartoons, flowcharts, stick figures, etc.) are commonly used as supports for individuals on the autism spectrum who tend to think and learn visually. However, not all visuals are created equal and, therefore, visuals don't all work equally well. This companion to Learning with a Visual Brain in an Auditory World helps the reader understand how to match the developmental levels of pictures and visuals to the developmental level of the person looking at the visual. In this way, appropriate visuals provide the language development for children with autism spectrum disorders. Drawing from their experience with children and youth for decades, the authors also show how effective communication can help reduce the confusion and anxiety that often lead to behavioral outbursts.
