Visuals in Medical Settings

This short video was produced by the Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA) team at the University of Delaware’s Center for Disabilities Studies. In this video, we will talk about the importance of using visual supports in medical settings for individuals with autism. Visual supports help clarify expectations in medical settings by making foreign concepts like medical procedures more predictable and understandable.
