How to Respond to Challenging Behavior

Hi Effie, Would a writing board help this client to communicate or perhaps a coaster sized book of pictures for him to be able to point out what he is trying to convey such as a picture of a toilet or drinking cup. Just a thought.

How to Respond to Challenging Behavior
