Is it true that some people just don’t communicate?

In 10 years of working with some of the most profoundly disabled people, I have never met anyone who does not communicate at all! Some individuals don’t have any speech which leads people to say things like ‘they don’t have any communication’, but a closer observation reveals that they usually have a huge range of non verbal methods of communication. There is so much more to communication than just speech – please see the About Communication page for more details.
