Product Description

Tactile symbol systems are valuable tools that aid learners with conversations about people, places, events, and ideas. STACS: Standardized Tactile Augmentative Communication Symbols Kit helps learning partners (teachers, parents, peers, etc.) teach a beginning standardized vocabulary. Teachers then introduce additional individualized symbols as needed. The STACS instruction manual and included online videos show learning partners how to implement symbols effectively as a part of their learner’s communication system.

Tangible symbols are appropriate for use as a receptive form of communication with any learner who is deafblind and as an expressive form of communication for learners who have a predictable motor, behavioral, or communicative response that the communication partner can interpret.

The instructional manual and the accompanying materials will improve partner understanding of the use of tactile symbols and provide a jumping off point from which to develop personal communication systems. STACS will open the doors of communication and enrich the lives of children and adults.
