Internet-Picture It! Free Art for Therapy MaterialsBy Kuster, Judith Maginnis; Speech and Language Forum ,
Publication Date: May 2003
Article discusses Internet tools that can allow speech-language pathologists to create treatment materials via free pictures. Using pictures from the Internet only requires the professionals to be able to find the pictures, download them, and insert them into a Microsoft Word document for printing. One resource for finding pictures is the “image” or “picture search” option on some search engines, such as Google (http://www.google.com), Altavista (http://www.altavista.com), and Fast (http://www.alltheweb.com). A few search engines are even dedicated to finding pictures. For example, Picsearch (http://www.picsearch.com) allows children to search in a “safe mode,” as all potentially offensive material is filtered out. Gograph (http://www.gograph.com) does not have a very extensive picture database, though it does have commonly requested icons, pictures, and clip art. Instructions for downloading pictures to a personal computer are included.
