Britteny Asher Consulting offers solutions to support individuals in starting their successful communication journey, where they are. For individuals who do not use words to expressively communicate and or require visual supports to successfully gain information, we start by assessing an individual’s Level of Representation. In other words, we offer activities and assessment tools to determine an individual’s ability to use increasingly more abstract symbols, starting with tangible Object-Symbols, and moving to photographs, line drawings and finally printed words. This critical information allows us to develop Augmentative-Alternative Communication / Assistive Technology support that is meaningful to the individual and enables their successful two-way communication.
For individuals who require eye gaze to access these activities, or communication supports in general, we offer a low-tech Eye Gaze Board.
