Visual supports help children and youth with autism, Asperger Syndrome and other special needs understand their world better and therefore help them function more independently. This resource goes beyond the familiar use of visual supports as schedules with children with disabilities to include information sharers, checklists/organizers, and visual behavior supports. Richly illustrated and user-friendly, the book provides parents with all the information they need to make effective visual supports specifically designed for their child using a variety of materials, many of them commonly found around the house. The book also takes into considersation that parents are usually stressed for time and therefore need effective solutions that don't require excessive time to prepare or implement.

Abstract
Teresa had lost one of her legs, cut off above the knee, in an accident riding with her brother on her father's ATV when she was only three. Now she is ten-ish and has the chance to go to live with her aunt and uncle in Vancouver for a few months to get---and learn to use---a prosthetic leg! It means leaving her family, her dog, and her log-house home in Chilcotin, but it also should mean no more crutches. Not an easy choice for a young girl to make, but as the district nurse in Chilcotin said, Teresa had never been afraid to try something new, and she decides to accept the challenge.
