Boards help nonverbal students communicate during recess

A way for nonverbal students to communicate with others during recess is available at numerous local elementary schools.

Amelia Abell, a special education teacher at Morningside Elementary School, said the school received a grant from the Elizabethtown Education Foundation for a communication board, which was installed earlier this school year.

The communication board contains words such as “I,” “You,” “Want,” “Drink,” “Tag,” “Push,” and “Inside,” accompanied by a picture. Students point to the image on the board to tell other students or teachers what they wish to do.
