Personalised Communication Book
Personalised communication books act as ramps to conversation. The combination of words and pictures makes it easier for a person with Aphasia to remember and communicate the words they want to. These tools can also benefit carers by helping them to understand and respond to the message. Ideally, these communication tools should be personalised and reflect the personality of the individual who will be using them.
'A Book About Me'
For someone who has lost their speech, communicating with people around them, especially with those who do not know them well, can be an incredibly frustrating process.
‘A Book About Me’ is a simple but effective tool to aid a person’s ability to communicate with others, by highlighting facts about their life and character in a creative and straight-forward manner. The book should include basic information in the form of photos, pictures and text about the person’s family, hobbies, likes and dislikes, and so on.
We have compiled an example ‘A Book About Me’, which we hope will provide you with some useful ideas to consider for your own personalised document. To view our example, please follow this link.
