The Patient Communication Kit has several easy-to-use picture-based speech aids to help adults and children who have had a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or a procedure or disability that effects their speech advocate for their own care and personal needs in the hospital and at home.
From calling for help, spelling out words, indicating their pain and emotional needs and communication choices, this kit will help people who are non-verbal communicate either temporarily or during rehabilitation. Use the speech supports in this kit to communicate basic care needs to nurses, doctors, caregivers and family.
The kit includes these 4 essential communication aids:

- Spelling Board - An enlarged alphabet board so patients can spell out words and messages, laminated for durability. Includes one dry erase marker for circling responses on the laminated boards.
- Personal Talker Single Message - A one-message Help button that speaks a voice message you can easily change. Compact size allows it to travel with the patient, not just at bedside. Tip: record the message in the patient's voice before hospitalization if possible.
