Which best describes your nonspeaking family member?
A person who is little to no speaking has very limited speech. They may or may not be able to produce a small number of words and struggle to communicate using speech.
A person who is minimally speaking may be able to use some speech to produce a number of words or phrases but does not have enough speech for robust and flexible communication.
A person who is unreliably speaking may have the ability to speak, but is not always able to access their speech intentionally or communicatively.
Spelling to Communicate
Spelling to Communicate teaches individuals with motor challenges the purposeful motor skills necessary to point to letters to spell as an alternative means of communication (AAC). As motor skills improve through consistent practice, students progress from pointing to letters on letterboards to spell to typing on a keyboard. Accordingly, communication moves from concrete to abstract as motor skills progress.
