Over 90% of children are visual learners, yet we use our voices far too much especially for those who find communication hard or have English as a second language. This kit works towards the child’s strengths and reinforces messages by using visual aids. Symbols use the internationally known Widgit symbols system.
Over 140 useful picture symbols on 14 individual fans each to support children in any Early Years setting. Can also be used with any child who is a visual learner.
Use to support children understand instructions, help during transition, praise children and support understanding of appropriate behaviour. Help children to tell you how they are feeling, or what they need or want. This is a comprehensive range of symbols that will support the children to understand what is being said. Really good to stop children feeling frustrated and unable to communicate.
