communication is a right
Writing about web page http://www.afasic.org.uk/index.htm
As language professionals we sometimes assume that every child can communicate. My personal experience of semantic-pragmatic disorder has made me question my assumptions. Being misunderstood, struggling to make others listen, trying to get the right words out at the right time, knowing how to connect with others - these are the real challenges faced by many with autistic spectrum disorders. Afasic helps those who cannot get their voice heard.
