Simple SGDs

Kids who are non-verbal can use Speech Generating Devices (SGD)s to help them express themselves and participate in daily activities.  Here are some past issue that focused on choosing vocabulary and finding opportunities to use simple SGDs:

March 2012:   I can...say what I want to say!
April 2013: I can...get my toes wet!
