One common need that many people with communication disorders desire is the ability to express their needs or how they are feeling. Family, friends, and caregivers often struggle to figure out why their loved one is upset or cranky. Wouldn’t you be cranky if you had a headache and your family kept trying to give you an antacid? This confusion can lead to frustration for everyone involved, so we came up with a solution!
Snap + Core First provides Dentist, Doctor, and My Health Topics to use when attending appointments or just talking about health in general.
These topics are incredibly useful at the appointment and perfect way to increase independence and self-advocacy! With these Topics, individuals are able to talk about their health, answer doctors’ questions, and ask questions of their own. The behavioral Supports within these topics are also helpful when explaining what is going to happen at the appointment. They can be used both before the appointment to prepare the individual as well as at the appointment to make it go as smoothly as possible.
