Understanding and Making Sentences: Picture Sentence Match and Picture Sentence KeyBy Birch, Jana; CSUN Technology and Persons With Disabilities Conference - 2002,
Publication Date: 2002
Paper discusses Picture Sentence Match and Picture Sentence Key for Windows from Mayer-Johnson, which were designed for students with learning disabilities, autism, or developmental disabilities who are beginning to combine words into sentences either verbally or as picture communication symbols. Picture Sentence Match was created to help students move beyond simply recognizing individual symbols or words, but rather to begin understanding how words combine in a sentence to create meaning. The student is presented with either a random picture or a random sentence, and must select the matching sentence picture from two, three, or four choices as selected by the instructor. The action described by the sentence can be spoken or animated. Picture Sentence Key allows the student to choose words as paired with symbols to form a sentence. The meaning of each sentence is illustrated by an animation. Alternative access methods compatible with each program are discussed.
