Taking from the expertise of Dr. Seuss, visual and repetition is key to the learning and development of children. Visuals and repetition give the subject matter intensity it might not have otherwise (Kimberly Helms) and when the child has emotional attachments to the pictures and words presented to them, the effects are even greater. With the Communication+ module, CommunicoTool becomes a personalized tool to help non-verbal children learn to express themselves. It makes the communication between the child and their parents truly personal, as if there was never a barrier.
Just like the other modules in the app, Communication+ allows you to upload and create images that are personal to your life. This particular module is special in its incorporation of the “feeling” category, the most difficult subject to express. Communication+ is intuitive and multilingual (French and English for now), and as you know the app never needs wifi, so you can take it with you anywhere.
If you want to make sure your experience is just right for you, here is how you can create a personalized communication experience is only in a few steps:
- Download the CommunicoTool app.
- Upload images of things that your family interacts with.
- Organize them into categories. Ex. bathroom, food etc.
- The child creates sentences from pictures of things familiar to them.
Upload your child’s favorite items. You know, the things that are most familiar to them, such as their favorite teddy bear (e.g Coco). Coco is one of a kind, impossible to express with a ready made word bank. But, with Communication+, simply upload a picture of Coco and it’s ready for your child to form sentences such as “I want (picture of Coco the bear).”
The connection between families and non-verbal children can be made simple, especially when elements of their personal lives can be easily incorporated into the conversations.
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
