Free Visual Support:Person-focused Request Visuals (PDF)
Person-focused Request Visuals are designed to help the child/student focus not just on the object of their interest, but also on the person from whom they are making the request. This support is designed to be customized with a photo of the child’s/student’s communicative partner in the red box of each simple sentence. These sentence strips can then be cut apart and placed on see-through, hard-to-open containers containing the child’s preferred objects. Parents and school staff can reinforce a child’s communicative message and focus on the partner by repeating the message on the sentence strip following the child’s/student’s initiation, bringing the container close to his/her face, and responding consistently to the request. The video tutorial briefly describes the use and individualization of the support.
