Visual Systems

In collaboration with the Rockford Park District’s Therapeutic Recreation Department and The Autism Program (TAP) Service Center, a program of Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago these Visual Systems have been created with the intention of providing accessibility for individuals who benefit from their use. Visual Systems are used as a communication tool and have numerous benefits. They can set a schedule for individuals and let them know what to expect for the day’s events, they can be used as a transition tool; they can be used when writing social stories, and so much more.
