“DO IT YOURSELF” ENTRYPURPOSE: To create a conversation tray for assistance in conversation skills for children with intellectual and communication disabilities. Take an old, round cleaned fruit/vegetable tray and use construction paper to differentiate the various conversation topics on sections of the circle. Topics can include anything a child might have an interest in (animals, family, friends, movies). Using Velcro, attach topic pictures (using BoardMaker communication symbols) to each section of the circle; this allows the topics to be interchangeable depending on who is using the device. Select various topic questions ("What’s your favorite color?" "Do you have any brothers?" etc.), and then use picture symbols and attach them using Velcro in the designated topic area. Once ready to use, the child can pick one topic and three questions under that topic to discuss. Another child can choose a different topic and respond to three questions and so forth. MATERIALS: Fruit/vegetable tray, construction paper, and Velcro. TOOLS: Scissors. SKILLS REQUIRED: Cutting and assembly. TITLE: Vegetable Trays Can Help Kids Communicate!
