Creative Ways to Say Happy Valentine's Day

This video came by my desk and it was just too cute to pass up!

 

We know our children and students with special needs can’t always say the words, so here are a few more ideas to help with  creative expression:

The Sign Language Alphabet Puzzle is a great way to learn sign language basics and hand formations. Lift each puzzle piece to see the corresponding written letter.

 

 

 

Tactile Cards are made with special ink that raises the letters off the card surface to extra touch cues.  Perfect to use to spell simple words or reinforce letter formation

 

 

 

 

Button Talk is an easy to program 10 second recordable message. Then just press to play!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love is the ultimate universal language of course! Hope these suggestions inspire you to help get the message out.   Let us know how you say Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yes, very inexpensive and easy to use. Check out the JoeyVest that allows for multiple ButtonTalks to be stored in the pockets.
