Description
Moving through the classrooms at school is not easy for everyone, especially for new students during the first days of school or for students with visual impairments or difficulties in understanding the languages. The written language is not always enough to indicate the activities that take place inside the multitude of rooms of the school building. Students involved in this project will create pictures and markers to hang up at the door of every room using Augmentative and Alternative Communication symbols thus making the school more inclusive to all students, including those with disabilities.
Aims
