The average child with autism thinks in pictures. This thinking process is known as visual thought. Visual thought is when a person thinks in illustrations, images or plays a movie in their head, instead of actual words and ideas. Consequently, for most children with autism, words are like a second language. As a result of this style of learning, the most widely recommended method for teaching children with autism is to use visual aids.
