"One of the most beneficial tools in the arsenal of parents and professionals working with individuals on the autism spectrum is a visual support system. The authors have done a remarkable job of taking readers through the process of developing and implementing a wide variety of visual supports. From developing play skills to learning math, telling time, fostering handwriting skills, and much more, this easy-to-read guide is an invaluable resource in developing critical life skills for people with autism."

"Cohen and Gerhardt's knowledge of the science of behavior change—on which the success of any effort to teach new skills depends—and ability to apply it in the form of easy-to-make and implement visual supports distinguish their book from most other resources. Anyone wanting to assist people with autism to increase their independence and quality of life will find this book a valuable resource."
