After searching for an editable or already pre-made communication notebook for my non-verbal communicators and not really finding what I wanted in a communication notebook, I created this communication notebook a year ago. I have had great success with the students I have utilized it with and the therapists I supervised have also observed an increase in communication during speech therapy sessions when using this interactive communication notebook. The notebook is also utilized in the special education classroom and can be sent home. Often times I print a school version and a home version that way the student always has one at his/her fingertips for daily use.
Students really enjoy moving the velcro pieces together as I facilitate communication with the interactive communication notebook.
Additionally, I pair each page with any AAC app of choice to have the student’s further enhance AAC communication via output voice AAC apps for communication.
