This is a very practical resource aimed at teachers and other professionals working with children and adults with learning disabilities, particularly those with visual learning needs (such as those with autism).

Julia Moor does a fine job in providing us with wide ranging, detailed and differentiated lesson plans for use in the continuing education of adults with developmental disabilities. More than this she reminds us of the importance of continuing education as an option for these adults and of the need to base this education on a curriculum that goes beyond daily living and work skills.

Visual Bridges for Special Learners offers teachers, trainers and activity providers an invaluable source of highly creative ideas for lessons for adults with learning and communication disabilities in important areas such as self-awareness, co-operation and teamwork. Thanks to Julia Moor, anyone responsible for developing activities for these adults will not easily run out of inspiration.
