---- DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --------- PURPOSE: To create a do-it-yourself device which allows individuals with communication disabilities to communicate by pointing to symbols while in the pool. The float board is made up of three parts. The upper part is an upside-down plastic bucket that is bonded to a section of float board. A float board can be obtained at any sports store. The second part, underneath the float board is a much smaller plastic jar, filled with concrete. This jar is then bonded onto the float board. The end result is a floating communication board that always stays upright. Two strips of Velcro go around the top bucket, to which can be attached twenty to thirty picture words. A portion of the top (i.e. bottom of the large bucket) can be removed and a separate lid put in place so that the inside area can be used for storage of picture words. These cards are clear plastic waterproofed. A short length of rope is used to keep the unit from floating out of reach. TITLE: The Float Board Communicator. WEBSITE: Workshop Solutions.
