Communication Boards make language tangible and accessible for those with cognitive or physical speech impairments. Communication Boards are designed specifically for and with the person using them and usually contain items such as the letters of the alphabet, commonly used words, phrases or images. They can be made in the most simplistic form, from laminated words and images cut from magazines to more complex electronic boards.
