Check out Waverly's Playground Communication Board!

Thu, 09/03/2020 - 2:30pm

We are honored to be selected as the first public elementary school in the state of Maryland to receve a playground communication board! Students will be able to point to pictures on the communication signs, which mimic the displays on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, to express their thoughts, feelings, needs and choices. The sign’s vocabulary design is based on TouchChat, a commonly used communication app for AAC devices. By using these signs, students will no longer need to carry their personal AAC devices with them, as the wearing of these devices can make it difficult to access the playground equipment easily.
