Tangible Symbol Systems: Making the Right to Communicate a Reality for Individuals with Severe Disabilities

Tangible Symbol Systems â„˘ is not just a mode of communication, but a systematic instructional sequence. In this book, we discuss the use of tangible symbols for communication throughout the day. This book was designed to accompany a 75-minute videotape entitled Tangible Symbol Systems™ (Rowland & Schweigert, 1996). We strongly encourage you to view the videotape before reading the book.
