About the Author

Janet Dixon is a qualified nursery nurse and speech and language therapy assistant who has worked in a school specialising in autistic spectrum disorders. In her work with people who have autism she often used symbols to facilitate communication and often found a need for symbols that were not available; so, she created them herself.

ISPEEK at School is a CD collection of 1,300 images to help children with autistic spectrum disorder communicate. I would also recommend it for other learning difficulties where visual communication is needed. The first thing that struck me about this was that it was different from other symbol generating software I have used. Its huge advantage is that you can import its clipart type images into any program ¿ plus its excellent price. The CD is easy enough for even the most techno phobic person to use and its symbols can be made small or increased to at least a page size if you wish to make a poster. ISPEEK includes templates to place pictures in as well as pre-designed timetables made in Microsoft Word to inspire you to create your own. There are USA specific templates at the publisher¿s website. The symbols are well catalogued and have clearly been designed by someone with a good understanding of autism. The behaviour symbols are superb and cover a number of behaviours often seen by children with ASD. The symbols are also well drawn and nice to use many of them being self-explanatory if you choose to use some without the text.
