Communication Board to be Installed
July 29 @ 3:00 pm
After many months of planning, we are so excited to share the news that a communication
board will be installed at Pen Park by the end of the month. We’ll have a short celebration to mark this new addition to the play area.
We will also have a limited number of laminated handheld versions of the board for
schools and individual families who would like them. If you cannot make the event but would like
a sign for your family or organization, please email us at email@example.com.
Communication boards use symbols or illustrations to help our nonverbal community members communicate with others. This will be the first communication board installed in a Charlottesville city park, and it’s a great step in making Pen Park a more accessible place for all to play. We are so grateful to the Rob Gotlin Community Leadership Grant of the American Osteopathic College of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PrintSource, Tobii Dynavox LLC, and our volunteers who assisted with design and feedback to help make this communication board a reality.
