Structured Teaching

Structured teaching is a set of techniques used within the TEACCH progrram.

The four major components of structured teaching are physical structure (the organisation of the room), visual schedules (visual information depicting where, when, what the activity will be), work systems (visual information informing an individual what to do while in a work or play area), and task organisation (visually clear information on what the task is about).
