About the Author

In her work with people who have autism she often used symbols to facilitate communication and often found a need for symbols that were not available; so, she created them herself.

Reviews

'Imagine how frustrating life would be if you had significant difficulty not only understanding others' thoughts and feelings when conveyed by speech and gestures, but difficulty expressing your own thoughts and feelings. The excellent ISPEEK resources will enable a person with autism to use visual images to understand what someone wants to communicate, and to express his or her own thoughts and feelings. I know these resources will greatly improve the happiness and quality of life of individuals with autism, their carers and support staff.' - Tony Attwood 'ISPEEK is a unique resource which can be used by parents and professionals alike. It is very easy to use and can be applied to any intervention which enhances the development of social and learning skills, a valuable tool for all special needs education.' - Jonathan Harris, Autism Consultant
