Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook
RECOMMENDED BY SPEECH THERAPISTS! Our new and improved Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook uses picture-supported communication boards to help people with speech difficulties express their daily care needs and feelings. Ideal for people who experience speech and cognitive difficulties from stroke with aphasia, cancer, dementia, ALS, advanced Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, autism and cerebral palsy. Being able to communicate and self-advocate is essential to maintaining independence and minimizing frustration.

We designed our Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook specifically to enable communication and choice making about activities of daily living. This comprehensive notebook provides pre-made, picture-supported choice boards on topics related to many everyday activities and socializing. The notebook can be used at home by family caregivers or at a care center by therapists, nurses or activity staff.

Our Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook is beneficial to users with vision, motor control and cognitive limitations where bigger pictures aid understanding. Users simply point to the pictures using a finger or stylus to indicate their choice. Instructions are included with the notebook.

What's in the Notebook?

Our Big Picture Caregiving Communication Notebook includes 30 picture-based choice boards related to personal care, socializing, needs and feelings. The Notebook is organized into 4 categories: Comments/Feelings, Activities, Personal Care and Meals/Food. Pages cover commenting, feelings, questions, weather, visitors, place to go, activities, music, sports, personal care, bathing, oral care, body parts, medications, grooming, dressing, meal times, hot and cold drinks, breakfast and lunch foods and groceries. An alphabet spelling board is also included.

Each topic board offers 12 large, 2" pictures (see inset picture shown) choices. More than 350+ pictures are included and no additional picture board-making software is needed. Additional core vocabulary is also provided on each page to expand the user's meaning. The back side of each page provides a blank template so you can personalize the book with favorite people, foods, activities and more.

Bigger pages and bigger pictures make it easier for users with visual and fine motor challenges to communicate their preferences. It's printed on durable cardstock and wire bound so the pages open flat for easy reference during caregiving activities.

Express shipping is available for this item during Check Out.
