Visuals are importing to the English Language Learner. Visuals are stepping stones when acquiring new language.

Although the do2learn website was designed initially for students with ASD; the site is a great tool for ELL learners as it is filled with visual picture cards and cues.


Visual tools that help ELL students:

Basic needs

At the beginning, students will need to access basic needs by pointing to simple visuals. 

Behaviour visuals

Without using language, an educator can point to one of the visuals to demonstrate the expectation.
