Teaching Communication to Nonspeaking People with Autism

Communication is a fundamental part of being human. Despite years of therapies, many nonspeaking people with autism remain unable to articulate complex thoughts beyond their basic needs. For the past fifteen years I have helped autistic people learn to communicate and gradually emerge from their isolation and access a more stimulating education.. I apply strategies designed to help children coordinate their visual and motor systems to help autistic people share their thoughts, and to demonstrate their cognitive skills by pointing to letters on a letter-board and typing on an iPad. This service also encompasses emotional support for the child and support for parents.
