Manual explanation by Autismwhisper Stinne Hust November 2014
Often encountered in situations and have no idea what to do and what it takes for something to have chance of becoming a success experience. Here you can hopefully find inspiration in Anja’s experience guide manuals tools, visual support mm.
One of Anja’s special abilities is to translate theoretical knowledge into educational practice both as an educator, mother and an individual person with autism. For several specialists, she pointed out that these manuals, as she so easily prepare, not so available to others, and therefore there is a great need for these manuals and visual aid.
Anja would like to give his experience to others because it gives her value to help.

As autism has been basically a vacuum, for example. it is to take a shower. What to what is necessary? What ‘steps’skal there for the whole, it is to take a daily shower? What are the options?
Here is the same principle that applies to all the manuals; to fill a void. Whole Anja fills out with all the imaginable details that needed to reach target whole or know an item’s detail. The void is filled out and provides the ability to pick / select options from the blank.
Regardless of the manual, the principle is the same. A manual is basically designed to learn something specific and it requires:
The goal to be achieved makes sense in terms of value. Example: Why is it such. important to take a shower? This is because personal hygiene is important. Both socially in dealing with other people, and in relation to avoid infections and diseases. See “Why is good hygiene important?”
Things must be done in a certain way and in a specific order. If we follow the same example with the bath. It is no good to wash the buttocks first and the head afterward. So we will not achieve the goal – to have a good personal hygiene. Therefore, there is a meaning to each step in the manual and the order in which they are made in.
When reading the manuals, they can be compared with the pages of a book. The book represents the whole, but the pages to be read ‘step by step’. There is a built-in logic.
One can not think all the manuals as individualized.
- The manuals are to be able to ‘find the roads’.
- Taking into account the stage of development, the user is on.
- You can pick out a whole.
- One can divide the “manual” and take some ‘isolated step’på way to the goal.
The manuals are available in 2 tracks.
The Ensemble manuals can be seen as the ultimate goal in a specific topic. However, this type of manuals, as with everything else, up to the individual’s free will, but there will often be some consequences as students then have to pay. Ex. if you do not go in the shower, it has social consequences -and other hygiene issues may also have health implications.
The point of this type of manual is that it is important that the manual as a whole is the goal and the user is presented to the whole. To achieve this goal it is important to follow any step to this of opinion rewarding whole.
This type is constructed as a whole, with every conceivable detail, just as one can imagine a complete map of Rome, which can be ‘picked out’.
Short manuals, which offers several options (ex. Hygiene for women / men), is like the map of Rome. Prepare a common “short” -a manual where, for example. are four possible ways to pubic hair. It probably does not use all four options, like the visitors who go to Rome, probably not using all possible routes on the map of Rome.
We know it can be different, how much a manual eg. To be divided up. The user can clear the entire manual on one page or should it be divided over several pages – the question we should reflect on. To make it easier to go to, we have some tips on how to get started when you have downloaded one of our manuals and “the whole landscape” front of him and knows the goal to be achieved.
It is different, how information is best presented to the person who needs the manual. One option is to take screenshots of the images in the manual to be used in relation to the structure that will make the most sense for the user – and then make its own document, for example. in PowerPoint. There are also many apps for Ipads, where to put the images, show only one image at a time on the screen. And then you can move to the next image. The manual is the same, the order is the same. Follow the manual ‘step by step’. But on the way, it is possible to display one image at a time – and then move on to the next. Several of these apps have have also possibility of audio and video to the instructions along the way. A good app for this purpose are ScanHow. Much inspiration can also be found on facebook Apps for autism and special needs, which are made with the aim of spreading awareness of apps that support the structure and visualization.
