special needs communication ideas Special Needs Communication ideas
Children with special needs or learning difficulties often have difficulties with communication. Some children require speech and language therapy to improve, and others need greater intervention and perhaps the addition of some form of communication system or device. However, no matter what the level of communication difficulty, there are many ways to help most children to communicate more effectively.
 Even children with profound difficulties have the potential to increase their levels of communication, allowing them to initiate, respond and make choices.
