Keep Your Eyes on the Ball

Golf page Boxing pageFootball page

The next section in my grandpa’s communication book is TV Shows which for him, really only meant sports. He spent the majority of his days watching TV so it was an important section to include, especially when the guys in the family asked if he caught a particular game. He only expressed two emotions when asked what he thought about the game: frustrated (when his team lost) and happy (when his team won) which is why those icons are consistent on every page. As I was working with my grandpa to decide what to include in his book, I was surprised to find out he watched boxing. He gestured boxing fists to indicate he wanted that included in his book. It made me realize how important it is to include the person in the process of creating their communication book instead of assuming what they want included.
