Augmentative and Alternative Communication 

TASH Resolution on the Right to Communicate (excerpt):

Statement of Purpose

The right to communicate is both a basic human right and the means by which all other rights are realized. All people communicate, and are presumed to have an active interest in communicating their decisions and choices. In the name of fully realizing the guarantee of individual rights, we must ensure:

  • that all people have a means of communication which allows their fullest participation in the wider world; and

  • that their communication is heeded by others.

Where people lack an adequate communication system, they deserve to have others collaborate with them to discover and secure an appropriate system. No person should have this right denied because they have been diagnosed as having a particular disability. Access to effective means of communication is a free speech issue.
