Imagine what it is like to be in a hospital, unable to speak or understand what is said to you.
Your Patients' Communication is Critical
The ability to communicate is critical, yet many stroke and head injury survivors, intubated patients, developmentally disabled individuals and non-native English speakers are unable to do so. Medical staff often overlook or never explore the use of low-cost communication solutions.
Learn Paper-Based Solutions
Technology-based solutions are not always available or appropriate. The use of images and written words with medical personnel and family can help people understand and remember what is said to them. Picture support can also help individuals express their needs, thoughts, and symptoms.
