Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, how do transition visual supports affect the negative transition behavior of students diagnosed with Autism. This capstone describes Autism and many different visual aids used to help kids with Autism. It is a reflection of one teacher's journey to find empirical evidence to validate the use of visual supports for kids with Autism. It summarizes at a small study using a duration map as a transition visual. The study was conducted with students using direct observations and behavior rating scales to determine the effectiveness of duration maps. It proves to be a valuable study in support of visual supports and emphasizes the need for additional empirically based published research in the area of visual supports and Autism.
