Core Communication Board (Physical Board)

July 30, 2023 No Comments


This two-sided core communication board (high-colour contrast & low-colour contrast) ensures that all children have access to the core vocabulary needed to communicate during daily routines, activities and play

You can use communication boards throughout the day by pointing to the key words in your sentence as you’re talking. By doing this, you are giving your child a visual that they can see and eventually point to in interactions/communications. By combining the visual with a written word, you can also start to increase your child’s literacy.

Research shows us that by providing children with visual communication supports and by presuming competence, we support them to learn language they can use to communicate with a range of people, in a range of places, for a range of reasons (e.g. commenting, saying “no”, requesting, asking a question).
