Symbol charts for playing with toys

Play is a great opportunity for language learning and development. The key is to watch what toys your child enjoys playing with and try to bring AAC into those activities.

A lot of playing with toys and games involves turn taking.  You could bring a simple chart into so many activities just to enable you to talk about whose turn it is, or whose turn it should be!

If you have the correct software (Boardmaker, Communicate in Print or Symbolmate) you can download editable versions of these here.

Below you will find a selection of charts to use during specific play activities.  The charts provided aim to give some ideas just to get you started – hopefully they will inspire you to create your own charts that will enable your child to play move actively with toys that they particularly enjoy.

You can view a demonstration of how you might use the two bubbles symbol charts here at Bubbles8 and Bubbles20
