Most individuals with autism think in pictures. They use the visual centers of their brains to think and process information. This visual way of thinking supports language and communication, but seems to never replace it fully.
Visual schedules are a core strategy used with people with autism. They help them make sense out of a confusing world. A visual schedule tells them what is happening, what will happen, and allows them to create purposeful activity. A schedule must be visual because people with autism do not think primarily in words.
