Hi, John! I am a speech/language therapist (working with 3-5 years olds) and I use Corel Draw and PhotoPaint almost every day. I use it, along with clipart, photos & photo objects, to produce vocabulary cards, therapy materials, story books, games and activities. I have been using Corel products since CorelDraw 3.

I am using CorelDraw for illustrations and demonstrations in special education. I do my my own cliparts in this subjekt. Once you know how to work with the program you can easily create individual worksheets for the kids! The scrapbook is very useful and timesaving!
Exchanging cliparts or / and worksheets would be very useful!
Hi Karen in St. Louis!
Your applications of CorelDRAW and PhotoPAINT with speech and language therapy are very interesting. Why did you turn to CorelDRAW Graphics Suite to help you produce your teaching aides instead of products on the market?

Hi folks! Somehow I missed this group getting started. I teach CorelDRAW at an online school http://www.lvsonline.com now, and also assist in the Digital Art classes there. LVS is a Corel Learning Partner.
However, I've used it for years for educational endeavors. When I first started with CorelDRAW - with version 3.0! - I had just switched to a PC from a Commodore computer. I was in the middle of creating a Sunday School curriculum for two and three year old children. CorelDRAW was the most accessible drawing program out there at the time. I used a combination of my own images and Corel clip art for that project.
I've also used it to produce visuals for English for Speakers of Other Languages courses I taught a few years back.
I still use it for quickly putting together visuals for my choir or for the various children's church groups I'm involved with.
Have fun!Val P.
