At Margaret Brent, we use a multimodal approach that may include picture communication symbols, topic boards, American Sign Language and/or augmentative output devices. We are providing you with a list of picture communication symbols and signs commonly used throughout our school with our students. These are alternative techniques that may assist or provide a student the means to communicate.
Picture Communication System -These are images produced to allow students to use pictures to communicate.
Mayer Johnson - Manufactures augmentative communication products for non-speaking individuals, including special education software, hardware, and printed materials.
Picture Communication Symbols - This material was developed by theNational Center to Improve Practice (NCIP) in collaboration with the Center for Literacy and Disabilities (CLD) at Duke University.
