Students with significant communication needs have to be directly taught how to use social communication. Just as they may have been taught to make simple requests the process of a conversation also needs to be visually represented and presented in a systematic way.
This product has the single pictures that represent the beginning part of this communication process.
The use of visual prompts aids this process and can be faded faster than if given verbal prompts. Have you ever asked a child to “ Say hello” to have the student repeat “ Say hello”
How to use this product:
Print off the picture pages
Laminate the picture pages
Cut the 6 big squares on each page
Cut the bottom as a sentence script
Punch a hole in the upper left corner of the picture square
