Teach non-verbal students to communicate using Mayer-Johnson Board maker Picture Communication Symbols with these amusing, motivating games.
The five game formats (Functional World of Communication Game, Spinning with Communication, Communication Bingo, Lotto, and Tic-Tac-Toe) cover daily topics, and allow students with varying motor and verbal skills to participate in games they often would not be able to participate in due to their fine motor or communication abilities. Students place markers on bingo, lotto, and tic-tac-toe boards, move game pieces around the game board, and hit a flashing spinner to earn tokens when answering questions. Activities and boards allow the SLP to plan a therapy session without spending hours making boards and provide 1,611 expressive and receptive questions and commands for student practice.
Webber Functional Communication Games contains eleven topic areas:
Around town—transportation and community helpers
Small group—weather/seasons and days of the week
Each topic area includes two different communication boards with 18 receptive cards and 18 expressive cards that target matching, identification, sentence completion, and responding to questions. In addition to teaching non-verbal students to use augmentative communication, the games are great for working with preschoolers with language delays, children with autism and hearing impairments, and children who respond well to visual cues.
