More understanding. Less frustration.
Individuals with communication difficulties, delays and disabilities struggle to understand and be understood. These interactive cards, with their colorful, original drawings, can help, making such communication more precise and less frustrating.
Here are just a few ways the Recreation/Leisure & Community Set can be used:
1. Create a visual guide to help sequence activities to be performed (example: go swimming/then to the grocery store/ then home).
2. Make vocabulary lists, using picture cards as vocabulary words (example: an activity list might include such words/cards as "copy," "trace" and "write").
3. Sequence activities. Play "first, next, last" by lining up 3 pictures (example: draw, numbers, puzzles) and asking, "What are we doing first? next? last?" The individual can point to, label or sign the correct answers.
4. Use picture cards as concept cards (example: How to behave in different environments).
5. Frame questions using cards ("Where" questions: Where do we go to see the elephants? Where do we see airplanes? Where do we mail our letters? "Who" questions: Who do we go see when we are sick? Who puts out fires? etc.).
Together these clear and vivid drawings provide a framework for improving communication. That means more success and less distress all around.
