The best book for this portfolio entry is Visual Strategies for Improving Communication : Practical Supports for School & Home by Linda A. Hodgdon. This bestseller is the most comprehensive book to explain the use of visual strategies to improve communication for students with autism spectrum disorders and other students who experience moderate to severe communication impairments. It is full of easy to use techniques and strategies that will help these students participate more effectively in social interactions and life routines. I didn't buy this book anymore, I browsed through it at Barnes and Nobles and got a lot of ideas that I used for my featured student. This is one of my highest scored portfolio entries.
