Free Printable Bedside Communication Board

Free Printable Communication Board
Being unable to speak clearly is one of the most challenging situations for someone who is sick and for the caregivers. As I cared for bone marrow transplant patients, many of them would develop temporary aphasia due to chemotherapy side effects. A communication board would often break down those barriers to communication and enable me to more fully understand their needs.

I decided to develop this communication board in the hopes of helping someone. This particular board includes letters, numbers, and words. I recommend printing and placing on a clipboard, encouraging the person to point to items on the board with his/her finger or pen.

If you have access to a color printer, the one in color may be a bit easier to use. The black and white one will work best with a black and white printer.

If you have a loved one who is challenged to communicate effectively, hang in there. This can be a very difficult time, but the fact that you are searching for possible solutions speaks very well of you. Don't give up!
