Based on our experience with our son, here are some suggestions about using alternative communication methods at home.

1. Allow your child to play around with Gabby Tabs. Give them the opportunity to get comfortable with how it works and what it does.

2. Make it fun. Use Gabby Tabs with your child’s favorite activities. The starter vocabulary is purposefully vague. Encourage your child to request things they love.

3. Show them how it’s done. Going to eat some pizza? Use Gabby Tabs yourself to show your child how it’s done.

4. Be patient. Probably the best thing about starting with a different communication method at home is that you can take your time. Some kids will pick up on it quickly and others will need longer to make the connection or see how useful that communication can be. Don’t give up!
