What are Communication Boards?

A communication board is a composition of images specifically selected to support communication by pointing to or touching one or multiple images.

Children with limited verbal communication, such as Autistic children or children with multiple disabilities, can communicate with their caregivers and other children through the use of these boards.

There are a lot of steps involved in creating a communication board: Selecting vocabulary, getting copyright permission from symbol libraries, color coding by parts of speech, hiring a designer, researching printing companies.

How we can help

Smarty Symbols has streamlined the process to make spaces more inclusive. We have designed a collection of communication boards, taking into consideration the vocabulary for each location. They are not only beautifully designed, but designed by a team of speech-language pathologist with expertise in communication boards.

Once you purchase our boards, we will customize them, manufacture, ship them to you and support with appropriate installation information and requirements.

Our team of experienced professionals collaborates closely with clients to create communication boards that accurately reflect the characteristics and preferences of their community. We recognize the significance of local culture and values and incorporate relevant visuals, core vocabulary, and location-based icons to resonate with the users.

By focusing on personalized solutions, we ensure that each communication board is a reflection of the community it serves. Through collaborative efforts and tailored designs, we strive to make a significant impact in promoting inclusion and enhancing social interaction within these spaces.
