The elimination of communication barriers is the main purpose of this initiative framed in the great project of humanization of the area of care for pediatric patients that is being carried out by the management of the integrated area Pontevedra O Salnés. This methodology seeks to facilitate the integration of those with autism spectrum disorders and all those who need visual supports because they have difficulties in communication or who do not have access to written language.
The use of this pictographic language facilitates the understanding of its contour, so by placing the pictograms in the health spaces, patients will be able to visualize what exists behind each door.
In addition to achieving standardizationand their inclusionin the health field, this system contributes to reducing their anxiety and promoting their autonomy, within the possibilities of each person.
Congratulations to all the participating institutions and to the president of the Association Por Dereito Cuca da Silva Rubio for her great work and her commitment to raise awareness and give visibility to people who face communicative barriers in their daily lives.
From ARASAAC, our admiration and all our support in this type of initiatives.
