Assentive Communication Introduction
Clock Communicators are "Low-Tech" augmentative communication devices, meaning you don't need a computer or software to make them work. They are an excellent way to introduce communication and making choices to new switch-users. When starting to work with your child, try taking pictures of the real choices that you want your child to indicate. It also helps to start with pictures and real objects presented. i.e.. Glass of milk on one side, OR banana on the other. Work up from two choices to as many as twelve. Try: pictures of bed, bath, outside, toys, video, food, drink, family members etc.
