    Great video great post! I need to ask a question. Ive been looking everywhere on the internet trying to find a program or something that can translate words in to pictures. Do you know of any such programs? I think in pictures and am special ed but am not diagnosed with autism. I need to get evaluated but I don’t really think thats necessary i just want to be able to learn efficiently and maintain that knowledge instead of forgetting it in 5 seconds (no joke). Thanks for reading my comment :)

    Fascinating: art certainly does have its powers. I’m going to recommend this to my sister-in-law out in Saskatchewan to look at. My niece has down syndrome-it would be so great if this could help her communicate. Keep up the good work!

    Yes, I was compelled to work with children when I found out about a girl who lost her speech delay in 9 months through drawing. She learned to do so by reading the back of one of my BigBlueHug greeting cards.
    I’ve had wonderful success working with kids.
    I give workshops and I work through a treatment centre in Montreal.The technique is called PictureTALKING–>Info at
