“Non-Verbal Does Not Mean I have Nothing to Say” – 2017 Autism Awareness Day 27/30
A common misconception about non-verbal individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder is that they are unaware of the world around them and can not communicate. I have created the infographic below to help explain what non-verbal means. Please feel free to print it out for display, post to your social media accounts, and share with those supporting individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Autism Awareness = Autism Acceptance.
Please see Communicating With a Non-Verbal Child for more ideas on how to get started developing your child’s communication abilities.
