I created this board for my son who has a speech delay. We were struggling to get him to tell us what he wants for snack, lunch, etc becuase he just couldn't find the words. Using the picture cards, he was able to make choices and practice food words until he didn't need the board anymore! This was a big success, so I thought I'd share this with my customers :)
The way this works:
~mom/dad/parent/guardian places four choices on the bottom of the board
~child chooses one (or more) and moves it to the yellow rectangle, saying/practicing the word at the same time
~my son occassionally needed to choose more than one food (for example, at lunch he might choose hotdog, ketchup and fruit), so I made sure to use a long strip of Velcro so that we could place more than one card in the yellow choice rectangle
This chart comes with a whopping 95 food cards and 5 blank (dry erase) cards (use these as needed to write foods that may not be included or that only come up every once in a while as a choice). I use the highest quality Velcro money can buy and thick laminating pouches to make sure this chart can handle being used by a child daily. This is truly a hands-on way to practice food words AND communicate wants/needs when the words don't always flow naturally.
The food cards will come in a large Ziploc bag. I highly recommend sorting them into categories (meats, snacks, drinks, condiments, etc) for ease of use. I did not send them this way because every family will sort their cards differently. I found while using this chart with my son that it was difficult to dig through all 100 cards, so sorting turned out to be a great option.
