Communicating Visually in Pediatrics
This visual communication aid is designed to help pediatricians and others who work in medical settings with children who are nonverbal, including toddlers; children with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, language disorders, intellectual disabilities, or oral-motor apraxia; or children who do not speak English.
Nearly 400 easy to understand, full color images depict common medical procedures, from bandaging to vaccine administration as well as important patient-provider communication, including describing symptoms or post-visit instructions. Each image is captioned in both English and Spanish for maximum in-office utility. Interactive use of this resource will improve communication, reduce fear and anxiety, and boost patients’ understanding and participation in the medical visit.
