Ispeek at School: Over 1300 Visual Communication Images by Janet Dixon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ispeek visual aids provide a simple and effective means of facilitating communication with children on the autistic spectrum. This CD-ROM is easy-to-use and contains 1200 picture symbols, designed especially for situations encountered at school. The symbols can be applied to a wide range of situations typically encountered at school, from social skills - a common area of difficulty for people with autism - to school curricula, work and break times. "Ispeek at School" also provides useful word templates to inspire teachers, therapists and classroom assistants in putting together daily schedules, as well as PDF samples to assist them in setting up visual aids for children with autism, helping them to cope better with their school environment. These are also suitable for parents and carers to use at home, covering the important themes of transitions and independence, and can be used effectively alongside the companion CD-ROM, "Ispeek at Home". These bright, contemporary and culturally various symbols will be a welcome communication aid for teachers, therapists and other professionals working with people on the autism spectrum in schools.
