Library Thursdays: Getting Started!!! Using Visual Systems to promote Communication
We have previously blogged about the benefits of using visuals to aid communication for people with Down syndrome. Dolly Bhargava and Carson Street School in Perth have produced a manual and DVD on the basics of creating and using visuals, Getting Started!!! Using Visual Systems to promote Communication. The book shows many examples and gives many tips to help with creating visuals as well as to help with communication. It is a useful resource for teachers as well as parents. They have sent us copies of their book to give away to anyone who would find it useful. If you would like a copy, please come and pick one up, email us or call our office and we'll send it out to you. We can post it out with any library books you may want to borrow.
