I have been successfully using this communication flip book for the last year with the following types of students:
- non-verbal students who need visual language modeling to accompany the verbal
- minimally verbal students who need extra prompting and visuals to express themselves
- students with severe articulation disorders who need augmentative communication and alphabet boards to get their message across clearly.
I cannot tell you how much I love these flip books. They are completely customizable because you can keep your main vocabulary on the flip book at all times and add extra fringe vocabulary as needed.

❤️ “Amazing! One of the best things I’ve ever bought!”
❤️ “I use this book ALL THE TIME! I’ve had special ed teachers stop me so they can look at it or watch me use it. I used it all the time with a language delayed kiddo of mine and it was amazing to watch him start to string together longer spontaneous phrases. He loved trains so I used the “trains” attachment the most. Thanks for your hard work!”
❤️”I just have to say, I LOVE this product. After day one of trying the flip book and mini core board out with one of my minimally verbal students, he is producing spontaneous phrases and requests. He is so engaged when using his new system! THANK YOU!”
