Do you stand with non-speakers?

Do you believe in the intelligence and competence of all human beings?  Each person having a right to their communication method?  Innovation is what makes the World grow and evolve over distrust, fear, and doing the same ineffective things over and over again?

Please stand with us if you are a yes to any of these questions!

United for Communication Choice is standing for all forms of AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) to be recognized equally.  Please like their Facebook page and check out their Website and, where you can, help us spread the message.

Before change can happen, more questions need to be asked of those against these forms of self-expression.  Only in seeking to understand the basis of their fear of innovation, can we speak to that fear and address their concerns in a way they can hear.  Defense with “You are Wrong!” only digs their heals in further.  Finding common ground from which to converse and powerfully listen to another and create partnership based on wanting the best for non-speakers.
