    Picture Communication Book

    Posted by Evangeline on Sep 19, 2020

    I am writing this from Malaysia on behalf of my father who had a stroke with aphasia. He seems comfortable using this book because it is simple to use, with everyday phrases and words in pictorial form that he chooses from. He usually points at pictures. The book is small and not heavy, it can be easily placed on his bed. It also looks professional and suitable for adults, given many communication booklets in the market are tailored for kids. I wld like to thank Randi and the team at Say It With Symbols for shipping this book to my father in Malaysia.

    Very useful. Mom had a stroke and it is helping her to identify item, emotions, and needs. The caregiver speaks another language. The book also helps them to communicate.
