News! My program, For Nonverbal Children: Functional Vocabulary Kit, is a bestseller at Linguisystems. Click on the FNVC link for details and purchasing information. If you work with non-verbal populations, this is an all-in-one product that targets picture communication (with Mayer-Johnson symbols), gestures and functional vocabulary development! Designed to be flexible and meet the diverse needs of non-verbal children. The FNVC can be used as a starting point for building vocabulary skills and response consistency, which are prerequisite to using more complex AAC systems.
