Do you have a student who has difficulty expressions his/her basic wants, needs, and feelings? These communication boards will be a perfect start for you! Sentence starters for I want... I need... and I feel... are included along with visuals that align to each request/statement. Blank boxes are included at the end of the document to personalize the board/add more visuals as needed. If you would like to edit the document, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to send it to you in word form. Pages 1-7 contain visuals, pages 8-12 are blank grids.
I would recommend printing each page on cardstock and laminating for durability. Place the pages in a 3 ring binder for the student so that the board is portable. Place one sentence starter prompt on the opposite side as a blank grid. Cut out the visuals and place them on the corresponding blank grid using Velcro.
