Product Details

The Electronic Communication Board (ECB) concepts are field-tested in a hospital setting by authors Jane K. Quarles, MS, CCC-SLP, and Melanie Wood, MS, OTR/L, ATP.

The ECB's multiple overlay designs are based on research to suit the cognitive, linguistic, and motor needs of the individual. It can be used as a single overlay to gain attention or answer yes/no/I don’t know questions. Or a combination of overlays can be used to deliver a more complex message. 

Research supports the use of video modeling techniques to train communication partners.  Staff, families, and friends can access an easy-to-use video tutorial via a QR code on the ECB. The video provides quick training at bedside as needed.
