Teach vocabulary to learners who have no means of formal communication.

Tactile symbol systems are valuable tools that aid learners with conversations about people, places, events, and ideas. STACS: Standardized Tactile Augmentative Communication Symbols Kit helps learning partners (teachers, parents, peers, etc.) teach a beginning standardized vocabulary. Teachers then introduce additional individualized symbols as needed. The STACS instruction manual and included online videos show how to implement symbols effectively as a part of a communication system.
