Feelings communication mat

Feelings communication mat


A communication mat for SEN children is a visual support tool designed to aid communication and language development for students with diverse communication needs. This mat is for children to communicate how they are feeling. It shows a grid of pictures and words for children to point to.


Why do you need this?

If a child has limited verbal communication skills, it can be challenging for them to express their thoughts, feelings, or needs verbally. A communication mat provides alternative means of communication, allowing the child to convey how they feel using visual symbols or pictures.


Some children, particularly those with special educational needs or communication disorders, may rely on non-verbal communication methods such as gestures, facial expressions, or pointing. A communication mat offers additional support for non-verbal communication by providing a structured and visual tool for expressing themselves.
