The above pictures are examples of how Stephen communicates. We have many more, with different pics on them, including his favorite restaurants and foods. This is called picsyms They are 2x2-laminated cards and I keep them on a huge key ring. Also, at home I have the same pics with Velcro on the back of them, with the other part of the Velcro on a long board that I keep on the fridge. This is Stephens routine, or what you and I would refer to as our, to-do-list. Our evening routine looks similar to the above pics and I never use over 4 or 5 at a time. I always type the words below the picture so he will learn to recognize the word in print in association with the item in the pic (I am forever hopeful that he will be able to read someday). For example: if we are going to have bathroom time, read a story and then play a computer game, the list would have the pictures on the board that you see in the above picture. After he has completed each task, he pulls it off of the board and puts it in an envelope labeled, finished.
