Picture and song boards are a simple cheap way to use assistive technology to enhance communication abilities also, "Some children especially benefit from seeing a representation of the words while hearing them." and at the same time practicing the words or songs shown on the board (2006). Aided Language Stimulation works in conjunction with the song and picture boards; allowing the teacher to point out specific words to assist in supplementing speech and language skills for communication. With the vocal output device, "The child only needs to touch a button or press a switch and the device will speak his or her message." working much in the same way as song and picture boards do to aid in the communication process (2006).
