Food for Thought – October 26., 2015
In the last few weeks I have heard from several different teachers that they have been told by others that their student “isn’t ready for symbols”. I am always shocked that anyone can still say this in 2015 when we moved away from a candidacy model for AAC around 20 years ago.
Right now, at the core of it all is this simple truth: I so love you and I so hate this foryou.
And because of that, I too find myself now with only tears and terrible sounds as an offering.
This is far less than what I wish to give you and much less than you deserve, but it is all that I have of worth as you suffer and wait.
And so, it is yours.
