I am really pleased with how well my son engaged with his new board, he uses it as an external brain that helps him to organise his thoughts and prepare himself. It has also surprised me how he uses it to express himself, by writing his feelings about activities with smiles and sad faces.
The board is good for children with challenging behaviour too, it is very durable, and I don’t have to keep replacing timetables I have made, as he used to screw them up. Now he brings the board to me on a Sunday saying, ‘Do my board.’ He Said, ‘It’s good, it helps me to understand what’s going on and I don’t have to ask mum all the time, as I can just look at it.’
I feel there is so much more we can do with the board, we are at the start of a great journey and it will be interesting to see how it develops. Thank you, OurBoards.
