Rating
ISPEEK visual aids provide a simple and effective means of facilitating communication with children on the autistic spectrum. This CD-ROM is easy-to-use and contains 1300 picture symbols, designed especially for situations encountered at school. The symbols can be applied to a wide range of situations typically encountered at school, from social skills - a common area of difficulty for people with autism - to school curricula, work and break times. ISPEEK at School also provides useful word templates to inspire teachers, therapists and classroom assistants in putting together daily schedules, as well as PDF samples to assist them in setting up visual aids for children with autism, helping them to cope better with their school environment. These are also suitable for parents and carers to use at home, covering the important themes of transitions and independence, and can be used effectively alongside the companion CD-ROM, ISPEEK at Home. These bright, contemporary and culturally various symbols will be a welcome communication aid for teachers, therapists and other professionals working with people on the autism spectrum in schools.

About the Author

Janet Dixon is a qualified nursery nurse and speech and language therapy assistant who has worked in a school specialising in autistic spectrum disorders. 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
