Sample of Alexandra's symbols. Alexandra is eleven now, I am just beginning to understand her a little more, and she just began showing interests on communicating. I ask her school to make this board makers symbols and we have decide together on the text who should go with each symbols. I wanted a simple text who will always be the same, at school and at home. I wanted the sentence to be clear, without an interrogation( for the apraxia) and that she can learn to make a connection between the image and the sentence.
This is a example : #1 Alexandra it is time to go to the Library!
#2 Alexandra it is time to read a book.
# 3 You can choose Good Friends or you can choose Thumbelina
Look at the one you want to read then look at me.
You looked at Thumbelina, then me
I think you want Thumbelina.
I read the book...
I use others symbols the same way, they measure 4.5 x 4.5, I have attached them with two rings, they are easy to take around, and to install standing up . The text is on the back of the next card , this way when fold she only see the image and I can read the text. The images can't be mixed up. I will share more of the symbols I and Alexandra use. Hope you understand me. Until later. Have a great day. Catherine
