AAC, Materials, Therapy Ideas

Low-Tech, Core Vocabulary Based, AAC Flip Boards

  1. Martha B says:

    I would use them in sessions with a 14 year-old non-verbal kiddo that I see. His parents have been using picture exchange with him for years, but they’re scattered all about the house and not so functional for our sessions. This would make things go much more smoothly!

  2. Katie Hickerson says:

    I would use this a lot as a work with a special needs population in a self-contained population. Thank you so such a great product!

  3. Claire Davis says:

    I am fresh out of college and just started at an outpatient clinic with primarily pediatrics on my caseload. Many of them are nonverbal or late talkers and/or have autism. This would be a wonderful and super useful resource to have on hand. Unfortunately the clinic is lacking on materials and my budget is limited. I would love to when this!

  4. Jamie G. says:

    I have just started my placement at CPS. I have many students waiting on new AAC evals (CPS has an AAC team do evals for AAC..) I would LOVE to use these boards to to implement goals and increase expressive output!!

  5. Marisha says:

    I would love to use these flip boards with my nonverbal preschoolers. I’ve been working on putting together my own AAC tools, but this one far surpasses anything I’ve managed to make myself!

  6. Bari says:

    Great product! I’d use these boards to aid my complex communication needs students across many activities. Life is so much more than “I want”

  7. Jenni L says:

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for and haven’t had time to make with one of my students with Down syndrome.

  8. Carol Smith says:

    I would use them to help the child communicate and show parents what they need to do to encourage the communication between the child and the parent!

  9. Helen Wagner says:

    Oooooh! I would use these boards in our centralized elementary class to foster access to core vocabulary. These are awesome for beginning communicators! We really, really need some low tech communicators like these with our kids!!! Our students and parents would love these.

  10. Cheryl Stinson says:

    Would love to win these

  11. Shari W. says:

    These boards would be perfect for my kiddos with apraxia. They would help give them a voice before they can verbalize on their own. Look great for expanding utterance and core vocab.

  12. anu says:

    I would use these with my nonverbal kiddos. I am new to the field but I have already bought a couple of your amazing products which I use all the time! I would love to win these.

  13. Meagan Lawson says:

    I work in two self-contained elementary school classrooms of children with intellectual disabilities/multiple disabilities. All of my students in those rooms are nonverbal or have very significant communication delays, and before I arrived, there really wasn’t any sort of AAC being implemented with these students. I also have several students with apraxia on my caseload, who would also benefit from the use of these communication aids. I think these flip boards would really help cut down on a lot of the behaviors I am seeing and would also be a great way to encourage carryover of communication skills at home.

  14. Hailey Taylor says:

    I would use this every day with my mod-severe preschool students! You can never have enough AAC materials to support students in therapy, classroom, and home use!

  15. Samantha Boll says:

    I am a middle school DCD teacher and a communication guru! I have a classroom of 7 nonverbal students with 5 using AAC devices and 2 with no formal way of communication. I work very closely with my AAC coordinator and have developed a communication class with our AAC coordinator and speech therapist. I am always looking to expand my library and think this will be a great addition! I love all of your stuff!!

  16. Valerie says:

    I would use these with my nonverbal students. It would be so nice not to have to make everything from scratch!

  17. Elizabeth says:

    I would use these boards with SEVERAL of my preschool students (autism, DD, SLI, severe speech impairment). I serve 3 preschool classrooms and it would be great to have a consistent set across the three rooms. I would also send the sets home with some of my students to use with their parents (once they’ve been used at school and the student is somewhat familiar with them). I really like the simplified version, too. Having the symbols in the same placement as they are with the more complex board seems useful for transitioning.
    These look fantastic!

  18. Andrea Chesick says:

    These flip boards are AWESOME!!

  19. Andrea Chesick says:

    They would be a perfect addition to use with my non-verbal intensive students! Would love the chance to win! Thanks for all your hard work…keep it up!

  20. Carly says:

    Wow you put a lot of work into these. I do not have very many students that are limited verbally but I do have a couple. I think one student would benefit especially because he does better with visuals to build sentences. I also think it would allow him to participate more in class.

  21. Kimberly H says:

    I work primarily with kids who have complex communication needs. I try to incorporate as many communication tools as possible in my therapy. Core word boards like this would fit right in with my sessions! Right now I am trying to use PrAACtical AAC’s year of words to focus on sets of core words.

  22. Olivia says:

    I’m in my CFY and it would be helpful with my student in a general-education/elementary school setting who is non-verbal and is still learning core vocabulary to communicate (requesting and commenting). Thank you for developing this resource!

  23. Becky Kopera says:

    I am always looking for simple, functional communication tools that at the ready for my sessions. I would use this tool with all of my students so they can communicate wherever, whenever with whomever!!! Thanks 🙂

  24. Wendi Greene says:

    I have three students that would benefit do much from this as they are beginning to advance in their communication skills. I have a fourth one who I think would also benefit as he is verbal but limited and I think this would help increase he verbal skills.

  25. Gina says:

    I would love to use these boards with some kids on my autism caseload that do not yet have a device to see if we can increase their verbal skills! Also, it would be great to have something like this in a small group where the kids have identical boards so we could all learn together!

  26. Katie says:

    I would use this for a student of mine with down syndrome that does not currently have a functional way to communicate! Love this. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Veronica A. says:

    I absolutely love this! I would use this to work with special needs populations as well as recovering TBI and CVA patients. 🙂

  28. Beth Spencer says:

    I would use these boards with my preschool, low functioning elementary students as well as non-verbal high school students. This resource looks great!!

  29. I am an AT specialist and we are working on building our lending library. I would love to have something like this to provide our teams that are new to vote words and devices with a comprehensive resource to get them started! Thanks!

  30. Beryle Robinson says:

    I would love to use this to help/support my 2 year old non verbal Autism grandson to help him every way I can while the long process of getting an official diagnosis then donate to Autism West when no longer needed

  31. Deidre says:

    with my kindergarten student who is selectively mute. 🙂

  32. Jodie Victor says:

    I have at least 10 kids I could use these with! I’ve been looking for a great low tech resource for awhile! I would do different things with these with each kid.

  33. Courtney says:

    i would use these with several of my students who have communication challenges that range in difficulty. A few preschoolers and one specific first grade boy with autism who needs a better form of communication.

  34. Cassandra S. says:

    I would use these in AAC evaluations, as demo to parents, and in therapy with several of my clients to support their communication across activities.

  35. Chris says:

    I would use these not only with students, but also as a teaching tool within my district and our state AT PLC. Thanks for all the work it took to create these. I’ve done them before on Boardmaker and it is a labor of love.

  36. jennifer says:

    i would use these with my three non verb kiddos to show parents the power of low tech Aac and to alsocgive these kids a better way to engage with classmates and family members.

  37. Erin says:

    This is my first year having the opportunity to work with students who have complex communication needs. We’ve implemented core vocabulary boards throughout their day, and your product would be a perfect addition for them to use all functions of communication! I’ve searched and searched for something similar! Thanks for your great products!

  38. Meredith says:

    I am the primary therapist for the AAC kiddos at my integrated preschool. I began in this position almost a year ago with very limited experience in AAC… But I am learning and implementing as I go. I’ve just discovered core vocabulary boards and aided language input and have been researching/prepping boards for my 3 classrooms… This giveaway would be a total life saver!!

  39. Claire says:

    My son is non-verbal and, while he has a communication device that he is learning, there are situations where the device is not feasible, such as horseback riding and swimming, or bright outdoor locations where the screen becomes invisible, or when we just need a quick discussion and the device is not readily available for some reason. These pages would help deal with these types of things as well as probably help him become more motivated to use the SGD, if we were more consistent in using a core vocabulary page all the time rather than resorting to “20-questions” under those circumstances. He would gain in that we would be able to better know what he wanted to say more of the time. Thanks for your work!

  40. Nicole says:

    A significant portion of my caseload have autism spectrum disorders, and several of my students are minimally verbal. These books would be a great stop gap solution while we’re in the process of getting devices for these students. Also, I love the fact that there is an option for a smaller field; there’s masking in high tech dynamic devices, but this is the first time I have seen it built into a low-tech system, while still following motor planning principles.

  41. Emily Cole says:

    I need help; my student needs this kind of support. I’m just not a visual person. I really can’t figure out to organize/produce this kind of visual support. It takes me forever to try create materials like these. Please help me.

  42. Kristy says:

    I’d love to share these with teams that could use them while I create their communication books, device overlays, wait for equipment to arrive, etc.

  43. Susie says:

    Several students on my caseload could benefit! A great resource to promote generalization at home too.

  44. jessica says:

    I’d use this with my 3yo son who is nonverbal, but so anxious to communicate. Thank you for the opportunity!

  45. Naylan says:

    I’d use it both at work and at uni.
    I’m currently studying Speech Pathology at university and this would be a great study aid.
    I’m currently employed as a Support Worker in disability day programs. I’d use this as a tool to educate the other staff at my work, as well as keeping it as a resource at the office to grab when communicating with our clients. I know several of our service users would benefit from this, however I don’t think my work would be behind it until they could see it in action.

  46. Linda Gottlieb says:

    I work with middle through high school students, all non-verbal. These students are new to me this year as my principal moved me out of my comfort zone of kg-3rd graders. I am distressed that 21 of my 33 students have not used or have any AAC. I am so busy making boards there is little time to do direct therapy. These core boards would allow me more direct time with my students. Thank you for considering me for this giveaway.
    I hope I win! I hope I win I hope I win or I should say I hope my students win

  47. Katherine says:

    This would be perfect for the students I serve! Several have devices that have been dead on occasion, so it would be so nice to have something this organized to pull out when necessary!

  48. Amy says:

    I have a client that is nonverbal and the family is interested in getting him a communication device. I think a low tech communication book would be a great place for him to start practicing how to build sentences. He is such a fast learner and I think it would make him happy to be able to comment and communicate with a partner rather than just requesting “I want” or picking a choice presented to him.

  49. Thea says:

    I would use them during my next placement during 3rd year as im still studying to become an SLP 🙂

  50. Melissa says:

    I would share with parents to use at home.

  51. Kris says:

    I know most of the comments are in future tense. But I have used this for at least a year and LOVE IT! I now work in a clinic that is very PECS/SGD-based when it comes to AAC and this flip book fills a very real gap! Thanks for all your brilliant materials, Shannon!!
