Description

Boardmaker: Supporting Communication, Behaviour and Learning

For over 30 years Boardmaker and Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) have been the go-to solution for teachers, speech and language therapists and parents wanting to create accessible and engaging resources to meet the communication, education and behaviour needs of those they support.

Join us for an interactive workshop learning about how PCS and Boardmaker can help you create, plan and implement:

  • A Communication Friendly Environment: enabling interaction and engagement of all
  • Positive Behaviour Supports: providing appropriate tools so potential can be realised
  • Inclusive Learning Opportunities: using ready-made and “from scratch” resources

We will take a close look at Boardmaker solutions, the PCS libraries and its evolution to include symbols appropriate for all environments, as well as dive into using pre-made (and free!) curriculum supports like Core First Learning and Boardmaker Activities to Go.

What is included?
• Free printable resources and giveaways
• Extended trials of Boardmaker Online
• A certificate of attendance
• Exclusive discounts, offers, and prizes

What will I learn?
• How to use and create resources to jumpstart both communication and learning
• How-to strategies for effective and engaging instruction
• How to enhance and extend learning and support positive behaviour


Who is this day for?
• Anyone interested in learning practical use of symbols
• Teachers, SLTs, TAs, parents, carers or anyone who wants to support symbol and struggling learners
