The following augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) boards were developed for use in medical settings with patients unable to communicate verbally. The number scale on the left of the board is intended to communicate pain severity; the human figure may be used to localize the area of pain. Frequently requested objects and actions are found within the white cells. Requests for people (e.g., physicians, nurses, family) are found within the tan cells. Feelings are located within the yellow cells. On the second page is an alphabet board, which is organized with vowels forming a column on the left (highlighted in red).
