Adults who are not able to speak due to stroke, intubation, brain injury or ALS can still make choices about their activities of daily living using picture communication boards. Choice boards with pictures and words help adults with speech limitations, as well as non-English speaking adults, express choices about their needs, wants and feelings to caregivers and family.
Our Portable Communication Book is an ideal size for users who need their communication aids with them at home or out in the community. It works best for a user who can understand and point to a smallish picture using a finger or stylus, and will not be confused by many pictures 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 Notebook.What's in the Book?
Our Portable Adult Communication book includes 28 pre-made, topical communication boards, including 330+ pictures to choose from. Each communication board offers 12 - 1" adult-appropriate simple, colorful drawings (see 1" example shown above). Users simply point to the pictures to indicate their choice. Book is approx. 6" x 5.5" so it can easily travel with the user in a pocket book or wheelchair bag. The boards are preprinted with the pictures so you can start using it ASAP!
