When working at Winchester Rehab Center in pediatric outpatient, I collaborated with SU to help a little girl and her family from Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010. I helped to create a simple picture communication system to help her and her family communicate with others. It contained simple pictures with both English and Creole (Haitian French) to help her get her needs and wants met.
