Communication Board Assignment:

Students will create an efficient, effective, age appropriate, and portable (no larger than 8 ½ X 11) communication board that they could potentially use for one semester. Students must consider the various situations they find themselves in (class, work, informal and formal situations, shopping, etc.) and the variety of people they might speak with (professors, friends, store clerks, parents, siblings, roommates, strangers, employers) during the semester. Students should also have a method to initiate/respond when a specific word/phrase is not on their board. This assignment will be discussed in detail during the lectures on “Augmentative and Alternative Communication.” Students are encouraged to wait to hear the scheduled lectures before beginning this assignment
