The Sometimes… / Other people… Board with accessories is designed to help some people to process their behaviours, how they impact other people, what they might do to change their behaviour and why that will benefit them and others.

Many people are able to manage their own thoughts, emotions and behaviours, others are not and will benefit from professional support and visual tools that supplement their own cognitive functioning. At OurBoards we believe, passionately, that using external visual tools to support executive functioning is not a sign a weakness or failure but simply a different way of processing information. The Sometimes… / Other people… Board that we offer is for use by an individual with support from a mental health professional, teacher or parent. We intend that it will used by an individual, with support, rather than “done to” them.

How to use

Visual and kinaesthetic thinking

The boards are designed to support people who struggle with executive thinking. We suggest that the process of using the boards is as visual and kinaesthetic as possible. When there is something to write, then suggest the person writes it on one of the Gecko Notes or Tags off the board and then, separately, place the Gecko Note onto the board. Allow the person to choose colours of the Gecko Notes for the different tasks and steps to be done. Discuss their choice of colour.

Suggested Use

This board is designed to help people to consider, visually, their behaviours and how they impact other people. The person can then consider what they might do to change their behaviour and why that will benefit them and others.

Get the person to write the inappropriate behaviour(s) on a Gecko Note and place it in the sometimes column. This is an opportunity to use colour to support the visual memory of the process. The effect on other people is written on a Gecko Note and placed on the board. The better behaviour is written on another Gecko Notes and placed on the “I will” column. A final Gecko Note has the reason for doing the right thing i.e. “This is” the kind thing or the right thing or helpful to my friends etc.

Materials matter

The Sometimes… / Other people… is manufactured as a sandwich consisting of a strong lightweight expanded foam base with a dry wipe laminate surface that enables you to write and wipe time and time again. Boards and accessories are suitable for use with most dry wipe pens.

“Gecko” laminate is so called because it is based on technology that mimics the tiny pads on a Gecko’s foot. “Gecko” laminate is an amazing new material, unique to OurBoards, that sticks to most smooth surfaces, such as laminated surfaces, wood, glass, whiteboards and smooth painted walls. Only dry wipe pens and cleaning sprays should be used.
