---"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable individuals with communication disabilities to communicate. To make this device, cut piece of cardboard or other stiff material to size. Place the cardboard in the center of the display material and cut the material, leaving enough for the sides to fold over the front of the cardboard. Apply hot glue to the perimeter of the cardboard and fold the material over. Cut excess to allow fabric to lay smoothly. Be sure to have Velcro-sensitive side of the fabric facing outward. Cut another section of the material to cover front section, overlapping the folded over fabric from the other side. Apply glue to the center of the board to hold the material in place. Glue fabric down around the edges. Cover Picture Communication Symbols with clear contact paper or laminate. Attach the adhesive-backed hook Velcro to the back of each symbol and place on the board.
