Visual Communication

Use technology to communicate visually. For many students with special needs, visual communication is an important means of sharing understanding. Use visual tools suchas Inspiration, Kidspiration, KidPix, and others to encourage students to share visually. Kidspiration and KidPix also have auditory elements that allow students to record their voice.
