The Importance of Communication

I wish I had known about non-verbal ways to communicate with my daughter Sara when she was much younger. When Sara was 10, we were introduced to a wonderful educator who specialized in non-verbal communication. Dr. Mary Morse came to Sara's class to talk to the school team about object communication and calendar boxes. It changed our lives for the better. Sara learned that objects represented activities and she loved the power that this knowledge gave her in school and at home.
