Transition Life Skills
Visual Communication Aids Assist Students Transition to Community Life
Leaving the familiarity of school and transitioning to community living is a big step for older students with autism, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, brain injury and other developmental disabilities. Transition age students with speech, communication and intellectual disabilities will likely need some visual supports to help them gain the skills they need to live as independently as possible, work, volunteer and enjoy new recreational activities. There may be a whole new set of people to talk with! This selection of visual supports and communication aids are designed to help with this important transition! Ideal for teens, young adults, high school special education teachers, group home managers, day program staff and caregivers. See also options for low tech Assistive Devices.
