Spelling Chart

Home

This is something that I used while on the vent to communicate with others.  I was able to nod my head to indicate the row then the column of the letter in the word I was trying to communicate.  Have a piece of paper and a pen handy so you can keep notes and not forget what was being said. 

If you don't want to use a chart you can do the same thing by just saying the alphabet.  We split it up in A-M and N-Z with me nodding my head to the side to indicate N-Z and a circular head pattern for a vowel.  To indicate I wanted a vowel I rolled my head in a circle.  This is a slow process, but it beats the alternative.  Be patient.  Tell the GBS patient what you want to do and work out some form of communication.  Being at the mercy of a nursing staff and unable to communicate is a  horrible experience, work out a way of communicating and they will thank you later. 

Just copy the chart into a blank document in your word processor and print.  If you prefer e-mail me your request  and I will e-mail one to you.  Download it as a PDF  or as a DOC!!
