Resources in this category seek to enable those who are minimally verbal, non-verbal or have difficulties identifying and expressing their needs to others. They can be particularly effective for those who have Autism, neurological difficulties or people who simply find visual prompts easier to use than gestures, words or articulation.
Many of these tools enhance social interaction in education and healthcare settings and can help professionals and parents communicate or understand the needs of those they support.
Mastering the use of communication tools can reduce frustration levels and difficult behaviour, as they provide individuals with independence and a method of explaining needs and feelings.
