unspokenVisuals is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner Hello shoppers! My short break away from my shop has turned into an unanticipated, unwanted much-too-long break. Life is full of unanticipated changes, and I have been trying to find enough studio space, to unpack and reopen my shop. I apologize to all of you that have been looking forward to making purchases from me. At this point, I am still unsure of when I will reopen. For any of you wanting to know the moment that I do reopen, click on the button below that says “Yes, notify me by email” and you will be the first to know.

If you have any questions, comments, or requests, you are welcome to send me an Etsy message. Thanks for stopping by!

My daughter and I love these buttons. Funny thing is "Bloop" is our word. So couldn't believe it when I found these. We text each other "bloop" during the day just to say hi. Thank you! Love the buttons

About

An echo, a stim, and a spin.

I started Unspoken Visuals because of the daily difficulties I struggle with using verbal communication. I can be very verbal at times, but it's extremely draining and not my preferred way of communicating. My preferred way is visual communication. The fewer words, the better. Pointing, drawing, gestures, pictures are all wonderful things.

When I really started to learn more about the ways I prefer to communicate, it was while working with autistic children. It was the most valuable working years of my life, and it was through them that I learned the most about myself and my communication style. I began to realize: I AM NOT ALONE. There are others like me. Those years were the first moments in my life when I really, truly was able to relate to anyone.

So, after years of making visual schedules, cues, and communication tools for myself and others, I began to make pin-back buttons with helpful phrases on them, to give us a way to communicate quickly and non-verbally. The buttons also help the people we are communicating with to under stand that there are different ways of communicating.

My goal has been, and is, to make portable, visual forms of communication that others like myself can use to advocate, visually and non-verbally. For instance, to get out of a conversation, or to start one, to create language boundaries with others, to be able to communicate safety needs quickly (especially in public settings), and to feel confident that we have a [visual] voice.
