I recently saw a question posted on how to use Boardmaker icons in Proloquo2Go. There are several ways to add them in, and I'll show one super simple way today if you have an iPad 2. For the most part, I've been happy with the icons in Proloquo2Go, but it's very possible that a child needs a consistent icon in both systems. For this tutorial, I'll show how to import Boardmaker's "I want" symbol. You need to actually have Boardmaker installed on a computer to do this.

Also, since Proloquo2Go adds text to go with the icon, I took out the text on Boardmaker......I only had the icon up as you can see in the picture.
Once your picture of the icon is in your iPad 2 camera roll, you can crop it so it looks centered.
You will need OS 5 to crop within the camera roll.
If you don't have OS 5, you can probably use the picture you just took as is. It may not look as polished and professional, but that's OK most of the time. The kids don't mind!
Once you have the picture of the icon the way you want, import it into your communication board!
If you don't know how to import photos, go back to the Proloquo2Go tutorials online.
