One of my favourite moments with Noodle and her AAC (and there have been many, you’ll hear about them all eventually) was when she made her promise as a Rainbow Guide. We set up the iPad so that when she hit anywhere on the screen it said the whole promise. She practiced saying her promise along with all the other girls and they made their promise together. It was really moving to see her join in and be part of the promise ceremony with all of the other girls. She now says her promise every week along with everyone else. It’s a really simple thing but it keeps her included in all aspects of the meeting.
The practicalities: we used her iPad communication software (Grid for iPad) to create the promise page but simple single messages like this can be done on a Big Mack, Doo-zy or other simple switch.
