Product Description
These six pictures represent those activities of routine for most children and adults who require communication aids. They are not for teaching vocabulary, but, rather, for teaching a child to initiate communication for basic wants and needs. You can either tape these up to the objects in question, and have the child touch them to communicate desire, or you can velcro them near the objects/activities (on the bathroom door, garage door, fridge, etc), which allows the child to pull the picture off and bring it to you to request it.

These particular activities have been chosen as they require the assistance of a caregiver to achieve - turning on a favorite TV show, going for a ride in the car, etc. That means that you can, after modeling a while, give the item or activity to the child only when they request it by touching the picture (you may have to give them assistance with this, such as taking their hand and touching the picture with it).

Many children who are non-speaking communicate their desires by taking the hand of an adult to what they want. If the child does this, every time they do so you can redirect their hand and yours to the picture and say "I want ____" before giving it to them. The first four pictures also work for classroom use; the last two I only included so they can be sent home.

You may wish to only put the picture up when it's available at first. Later you can teach the concept of waiting for an object or activity, but right now it's ideal if you can reinforce the concept by giving the object or activity to a child right after they request it. So while toilet may stay up on the bathroom door all the time, if you can't take the child for a ride in the car at the moment, you may wish to take that picture down for a bit and put it back up when it's available again.

(Oh, and I know the thumbnail previews make them seem like terribly formatted pictures, don't worry, they're actually fine once you download them. TPT does that to all my docs.)
