Do you have BIGmacks, talking buttons or Step-by-Steps lurking dustily at the back of a cupboard in your classroom? Are you confused about the difference between a Smooth Talker and a QuickTalker S? Do you have no idea what any of these are, let alone how and why you would use them?!

If so, our new posters and booklet should help you navigate your way through the world of single and multi-message devices.

Our 'A Guide to Single and Multi-Message Devices' poster will show you the difference between BIGmacks, step-by-steps and a host of other devices. It will give you tips and hints on recording, labelling and considering the best device to suit your needs. The poster is available to download and print, plus the downloadable PDF has clickable links wherever a product is mentioned.

Now you know your way around a LITTLEmack and a step-by-step gameplay with levels, our '20 Ways to Be Excellent' poster will give you ideas for using single and multi-message devices across the curriculum. The poster has 20 quick ideas spread through the 8 curricular areas, indicating which device you'll need to try them out. The accompanying booklet explains in depth each activity, links them to specific Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes, and gives suggestions of words and phrases to record into the devices. 

Single and multi-message devices a are simple, brilliant way of including everyone in your classroom. They can be a fantastic tool for your learners to practise social skills, control what is happening, and most importantly, have a voice. Have fun joking, singing, informing, commanding, questioning and directing!
