Communication Sheets

Parents and Carers:


You can use these communication boards to help each other express needs, wants and emotions. Adults will need to model how to use the board in order for children and young people to learn what the symbols mean (see demo video). Communication mat  demon


For example, an adult points to and says "more" if they reach out again towards something they like, or by pointing to and saying "stop" if they push and object away. You might need to do this lots of times before they begin to use the board themselves.


The board should be always available for communication to happen.


Children and young people may look at the symbol or may try to reach and touch. Ideally model and encourage a point of the finger if possible. Accept any effort in reaching or looking as communication and reward them with 'more' of their favourite song for example. Try to keep the board consistent so that they only have to think about communicating and not where the symbol is each time (this is called motor planning).


Have fun with your favourite songs and activities to promote communication. Let us know how you get on.
