How can you help children with moderate to severe autism become more effective communicators? Discover the Visual Immersion System (VIS), a practical, research-based intervention framework that taps into the strong visual processing skills many children on the spectrum have. You'll learn how to use readily available resources - from photos and symbols to apps and software - to create a customised system of visual supports that boost seven key communicative functions.

For each of the functions, you'll get comprehensive how-to guidance on choosing tools and materials, conducting systematics instruction, collecting data, and assessing how well interventions are working. A must for SLPs, interventionists, and educators, the innovative VIS approach will ensure better communication and higher quality of life for children with autism.

Why The VIS WorksUses visual supports, an approach that's proven successful for children with autismStrengthens communication skills needed for learning and meaningful human interactionBuilds on evidence-based assessment and intervention procedures developed over decades at Boston Children's HospitalIncorporates a wide range of low-tech and higher-tech optionsFlexible - can be used in home, school, or community settingsprovides clear, easy-to-use instructions on conducting interventionsIncludes guidance on generalising new communication skills
