    That’s awesome you share with the teachers! I use to screen shot and save symbols as well. Then I learned about the Vantage Vanguard PASS software for PRC/LAMP and Chat Editor for TouchChat/Saltillo. If you’ve never used it it’s awesome! It’s free to download and you just chose the layout needed or you can upload the child’s layout. You then can make sentence strips with how to navigate to make the sentence or just single words. Then copy and paste into PowerPoint or Word. I also downloaded the software on the all teachers computers. They love to use it (very easy to use) and they also love that it will show them how to navigate to the specific vocabulary as well! It was definitely a game changer for visuals! Saved a ton of time!

      Wow! I’ve never heard of the Chat Editor for TouchChat! I’ll look it up now – thanks!

      Thanks for sharing your comment – I am very interested in doing this! I downloaded the NuVoice software from PRC but I can’t seem to figure out how to make sentence strips or even individual icons to print out!? – or how to copy and paste into Word. Is there any way you have a tutorial video available on this??

    Love this idea, thanks. Would this also work for sign language? Had not thought of sharing with classroom teacher, coaches, cafeteria workers and parents but that would be awesome.

    • Shannon says:

      Glad the post was helpful for you. It could work with sign language if you found images of each sign – great idea!

    Question: Do you know if it is possible to screen shot individual buttons using a PC once I’ve emailed the individual pages from the iPad?

    Shannon, You are a superhero! I’m pretty sure if I tried doing this, it would take longer than 30 minutes. 🙂 But it’s such a great idea.

    This might be a silly question….What are some examples of academic materials that you and classroom teachers have used these symbols for?

    • Shannon says:

      You are so sweet, Gillian! Thank you! We use them to make everything! One example is that a sped teacher I work with wanted to make sight word flashcards for a student. She wanted to fade out cues so she made flashcards with the sight word on them AND the symbol to start, and then faded the symbol so there was only the word after the student showed some success. Other teachers use them on adapted homework assignments or independent work such as calendar pages. Hope that helps!
