Adults with speech difficulties as a result of stroke, dementia, brain injury or cognitive disability will appreciate being able to make choices using symbol-based communication boards appropriate for their daily needs. Users simply point to the pictures using a finger or stylus to indicate their choice. Topics covered are: yes/no, about me, WH questions, alphabet spelling boards, comments, basic needs, visitors, places to go, feelings, activities, exercise, personal care, hot and cold drinks, grocery shopping, fast foods, health & beauty aids, meal choices and more!

Our Portable Communication Book is an ideal size for users who need their communication aids with them at home or out in restaurants and activities. It works best for a user who can understand and point to a picture using a finger or stylus, and will not be confused by many choices on a page. If your user has vision, comprehension and movement limitations and would benefit from larger pictures, please see our Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook.
