A great visual for parents as well!:
Use this visual communication board to help your students communicate where they want to go. It is set up so that they can use either a single word or a full phrase, depending on their communication level. The board includes pre-determined locations as well as blank spaces for you to fill in your own locations.
When I first use communication boards, I point to each picture as I say the word, as a model. For students who are working on developing sentence length, I have them imitate me. For students who are non-verbal, I teach them to point to each picture, and as they point I say the word for them.
The size of the board is created so that you can place it into a 3-ring binder - just laminate and poke holes and you're ready to go!
If you find this board useful for your students, browse through my other communication boards, as they are all part of a series!
