Communication boards, charts & books

The items listed here offer a simple solution for basic communication if you have little or no speech. They can also be useful if you are unable to write things down easily.

Included are letter, word and picture charts, folders or books; eye pointer (or eye gaze) boards; and powered rotary pointer boards.

Bear in mind that creating these communication aids can take a long time and needs to be an ongoing process because they should be revised and updated regularly (Scope, 2010).
