WACO Core Board gives student a way to communicate with friends

You may remember this story 3 Grand Champion Team Winners of the Next Top AAC Model Competition! when we announced that 3 districts were awarded a customized all-weather, outdoor playground communication system to expand communication all day, every day, with everyone and in all places – like the playground with peers! Other Districts, like WACO, also took the initiative and installed one on their school grounds.

One of our (WACO) students with autism was very excited to interact with the new Core Board during recess. At first, she kept pulling her para to the board to point to different pictures. Next, a classmate joined her and they took turns pointing and saying different words. They were laughing and playing all recess long.
