Visual Support Pack - Free Resource - We are pleased to offer our Visual Supports and Templates Packs free of charge.  The packs give useful information on how visual supports can be used effectively.  They detail how to use visuals to support children’s communication and to develop their understanding of language, as well as how to use visuals to give children  information in an easily accessible way.  The template pack includes many common visual resources that you are able to print.  The packs can be used by practitioners to support children within settings or  can be shared with parents who are currently supporting their children at home (either in their entirety or by sharing particular visual boards that you feel would be appropriate for a particular child.)
