Communication boards are devices that allow people with limited language skills to express their needs, preferences, and decisions by selecting images that represent words.
They can be simple, handmade boards or apps and computer programs people can use on smartphones, tablets, or laptops.
Many people may benefit from communication boards, such as autistic people, people recovering from stroke or brain injury, and people with ALS and learning disabilities.
Using a communication board can ease the difficulty of communicating with people who have language limitations.
Communication boards can also help develop better language skills, more autonomy, and positive social interactions.
