  • Visual Cue Card Lanyard Set – For School

    $4.00

    * This product is a downloadable pdf – you will have immediate access after purchasing

    These cue cards are meant to be placed on a ring and carried with all adults that are working with a child with autism. That way, the team can provide consistency, and predictability with the visual cues they are using.

Giving directions verbally isn’t usually the most effective way to communicate with a child with autism, but visuals can act as a bridge between receptive and expressive communication.
