"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide a simple, low-cost communication board. The game's vertical frame enables players drop black or red disks into rows. The object is to get four of one color disks in a row, horizontally, vertically or diagonally before the opponent. To adapt it as a communication device, glue pictures or letters to both sides of the disks and drop them into the frame. Selections can be made by pointing. It can also be used as an educational tool by gluing shapes, pictures or other identification symbols to the disks and having a student or child line the pictures up in the various categories. For instance, categories might include different kinds of fruit, vegetables, animals, or textures, etc. In either context the board can be configurer to suit each student's need.
