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. These small size communication boards work 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 boards. Each board is approx 4" x 6" to fit into a small notebook in a handbag or on a wheelchair. Choose the boards you wish to use with the user, cut them out and include them on a small binder or album of your choice.
