Do you find integrating play with AAC challenging for your students? These AAC play-based communication boards are a functional way to use visuals to support language focusing on two activities that our little one play with all the time: Crafts & Shopping and have 3 different boards for each task to cater for different skill levels.

NOTE: This product is part of my $$ saving Play-based AAC Board BUNDLE.

Do not purchase this product if you already own the bundle.

The best part about these boards is that you can use them both individually or in groups with children with ASD, language delays, global development delays and even apraxia. We all know the power of using visuals and so this is a flexible way to introduce visuals and promote communication within play. The 9 different choice strips are a huge bonus either to support the communication boards, or as a nice place to start.

The play-based communication boards all contain a mixture of vocabulary including: nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions, pronouns, social comments and questions. This can pave the way for combining vocabulary into 2-4 word sentences (or more). A language expansion list has been included with a whole range of different combinations such as Noun+Verb: 'pencil draw' Verb+Preposition: 'put on' so that you can increase the function of your student's language.

An extra page is provided so that they can be cut individually and used as Velcro based choice boards to start at a more basic level and teach concepts separately before you build up to the use of the boards.
