Welcome to OurBoards!

Neale and Fliss

I’m Neale pictured here with my eldest daughter Fliss and she is one of the reasons I started OurBoards. Fliss has learning disabilities which impact her daily life and the life of those around her.

In supporting Fliss I realised there was a lack of professionally produced visual resources available to help communication. So, I decided to design and manufacture a range of task specific boards to meet that need as a way of helping those with hidden disabilities.

Changing the world for those with neurodiversities and giving them the chance to thrive and not just survive is my passion! Which is why OurBoards’ supported apprenticeship scheme aims to give employment to those with neurodiversities.

I hope you enjoy browsing through the OurBoards website and if I can help you in any way please call, I always love to chat!

Our vision at OurBoards is transforming lives for people with hidden disabilities and neurodiversities.

We do this by producing dry-wipe boards that enable more helpful communication.

Better communication leads to fewer meltdowns, less stress, more confidence and improved behaviour and encourages positive relationships in all areas of life.

Our products are useful for all, including those with ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, FASD, Dementia, Down Syndrome, Strokes, SEND and Learning Disabilities.
