In most U.S. schools everyone is already buzzing about Halloween. What are they going to dress up as? Who is going out Trick or Treating with whom? Will there be a party in school? What does your Jack O’Lantern look like?
For students who are non-speaking, or whose speech is limited, these conversations often happen around them, but not with them. If you have a student who doesn’t yet have a robust communication system, here is a free picture-based communication board with holiday themed fringe vocabulary in addition to core words.
Hopefully, this will allow that student to take part in some of the conversation and fun. Laminate it, to keep it looking BOO-tiful.
Have a treat-filled Halloween. Keep on Talking!
