Presume Competence

Too often, people are underestimated because others think they are incapable of communication. This leads to them not having access to a means to communicate and opportunities to learn. 

How can you show what you understand if no-one has provided you with the means to communicate your thoughts? The ultimate outcome can have a devastating impact on their future. It doesn’t have to be this way.

There are no prerequisite skills required before you can provide someone access to a means to communicate, and start modeling its use. If we believe this, we make the least dangerous assumption.

To mark Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Awareness Month, we encourage you to spread the word. Everyone has something to say. If we presume competence, we can give them the words to say it.
