Communication Board

If you’re trying to find a low-tech/back-up option for AAC, I did make two QWERTY-style letter boards with some picture communication symbols along the bottom. This is the one I’m allowed to share, as I have permission to share PCS/Boardmaker symbols. Unfortunately, the one I actually made/use as my own backup has the symbols from Proloquo2Go, and I don’t have permission for that one.

Visual Schedules

These are some simple visual schedule sheets. I uploaded the Microsoft Word versions so that you can edit them as needed, putting in what pictures or colors you prefer.

Picture Communication Symbols

I have permission to share these as I’m licensed to distribute them, yay! Remember, these are intended to be used for visual schedules and helping make decisions when overwhelmed – not for any form of ABA, PECS, or token boards. Here are some things I’ve put together.

From My Conversation Cards Post:

I made some “conversation cards” for scripting, when my brain has trouble loading what I want to say. Here’s an editable version and a PDF version:
