Putting EBPs into Practice: Visual Supports for Paraprofessionals AUTISM

For more information or to register for this training, visit:

The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice released the 2020 evidence-based practice report identifying 28 evidence-based practices (EBPs) for autism. Visual supports is one of the 28 EBPs identified. This training will discuss visual supports, when, how, and why they are used. Examples of various visual supports will be shared demonstrating how they can support student success in various domains. Participants will independently view an online module then participate in a scheduled 3-hour session connecting information from the module to practices in the classroom, in the community, or in the home. This time will include opportunities to ask questions, share insights, practice, and access additional resources and examples of visual supports in practice. By the end of the training participants will be able to identify the three types of visual supports, name various activities where visual supports can be used, and identify what type of visual support will be best to use with at least one individual with autism.

Intended Audience

Paraprofessionals and instructional aides.
