Are you using this communication app with your student or child? Let Bluebee Pal help communicate during these suggested activities:
- Use Bluebee pal during a structured activity on the topic page for bubbles.
- Take turns blowing and popping bubbles while modeling specific language in the bubbles page.
- Take Bluebee Pal out in the community and order food at your local fast food restaurant. Many AAC users can be intimated by this process but with Bluebee Pal serving as the model, this experience will be less stressful and easy to succeed.
- Use Bluebee Pal for visual supports. Let Bluebee Pal show the student how to transition from one activity to another by providing the schedule and making the sound effect for when the timer is finished.
