Calhoun's Comments

Wrapping up AAC awareness month, I’d like to share two of my favorite communication quotes with you.

Breathing is the only prerequisite that is relevant to communication. Breathing equals life, and life equals communication. It is that simple." ~ Mirenda, P. (1993).

“No student is too anything to be able to read and write” David Yoder, (ISAAC 2000)
