Communication

Communi-action

Engage

“Non verbal communication is the most powerful form of communication.” My communication is diverse, non verbal, but vocal.  

My Mum says, “Choice of colour, clothing, hairstyles and other factors affecting appearance, also includes non verbal communication.”

Over the years, we basically use any and every means to help Angela makes sense of her environment plus give credence to all her attempts of vocalising, making sounds and expressing herself.

CODE

More than voice or even words, non verbal communication helps to create your image in others mind and even you can express your emotions and feelings in front of others.

SENSORY

The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.

CUES

Finding ways to develop shared attention into activities. This allows  Angela to participate in her life, rather than just comply.

ALLIES

A communication ally or advocate is important for people with a disability to find their voice and to be listened to in a way that reflects their own perspective.

CHATTERBOX

Not being able to speak is not the same as not having anything to say

WHATEVER WORKS

The basic building block of good communications is feeling that every human being is unique, connected and of value.
