Tobii Dynavox Communication board for refigees

Refugee Communication Boards

We’ve all seen some of the horrific pictures of people leaving their home countries, seeking refuge somewhere safer. Most of us can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like to flee one’s country, belongings, sometimes also family and friends. The stress, anxiety and sorrow – it is ungraspable.

And imagine then crossing the borders into another country where they speak a language that you don’t understand, what do you do then? How do you say that you are hungry? In pain?

In order to facilitate communication we’ve created a simple communication board with our software at Boardmaker Online that allows you to express some basic needs and feelings.

If you happen to be one of those kind souls helping the refugees on the ground, please download the communication board in the appropriate language below, print it out, and use it when you talk to those people in need.
