Visual resources for health appointments

17th September 2013

  • The Sheffield Speech and Language Therapy Service is currently looking at ways of making hospital visits and other health appointments easier for children with communication difficulties.

    Therapists met with members from our Health subgroup to get their views on a range of visual resources, such as picture and symbol supports explaining what to expect during appointments, customisable schedules, and “tell me where it hurts” picture boards.

    To request visual supports for your child’s forthcoming health appointment, please contact your child’s speech and language therapist directly. The therapist will be able to adapt the resources to suit your child’s needs.
