Children on the autism spectrum are often highly visual learners,
making colour a powerful and motivating learning tool.
This book explains how colour coding helps
young people with autism to generalise lessons already learnt.
For example, assigning the colour aqua to all personal care
activities or the colour purple to timetabling and transitions
establishes clear, visual categories. This allows children
to draw on learnt experiences, which creates a sense of order,
reduces anxiety, and can aid communication, understanding
emotions, organisation, coping with change and diversifying
A wealth of tried-and-tested printable resources to enable
the practical application of colour coding in the classroom
and at home are included on a CD-ROM.
With colourful illustrations and resources,
Colour Coding for Learners with Autism is an effective, must-have
teaching tool for anyone involved in the education of young
people with autism.
