Visit this link to view the recording of the 1st Boardmaker session which was about using Boardmaker Community to access free visual and communication supports and activities. Enid shared information about all the different Boardmaker programs you could possibly have access to so that you would know how to download the activities and use them with the program that you have. In preparing for the presentation, Enid also found thematic units with differentiated activities in PDF form that you could download and use even if you don't have a Boardmaker program. Please share these resources with any staff.
