Everybody communicates – whether by using language, actions, gestures, facial expressions, sounds, or other means. People with disabilities need access to effective communication in order to be able to advocate for ourselves in all aspects of our lives – from health care, to housing, to everyday decision-making. Having access to the right communication supports can mean the difference between being included in our communities, or being locked up in an institution. It can mean being able to tell the doctor what’s wrong, rather than having our health problems ignored. Everyone has something to say – and having the tools to say it makes our lives better.
