Emergency Communication Boards


The Emergency Communication Board (ECB) is a tool intended to assist emergency personnel to communicate with individuals who are, for various reasons, not responding to verbal instructions or questions. These may be individuals who are non-verbal, on the autism spectrum, or simply feeling overwhelmed or confused. By pointing to pictures on the ECB, emergency personnel can focus their need for information with the individuals level of understanding, ideally securing even a yes or no response allowing them to provide assistance in a non-threatening way. The tool is inexpensive, low tech, and easily accessible.
