Accessible Communication Bill of Rights

Many of us are familiar with the Communication Bill of Rights for AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) users, which has been shared for over 25 years.  However, this document has been text-based, and formatted at a 9th-11th grade reading level.  Kate Ahern, host of the Teaching Learners With Multiple Special Needs Blog, has shared an image-embedded, accessible version.

Find an explanation and link to the Accessible Communication Bill of Rights on her blog.  While you’re there, explore the many additional resources she has posted for learners with multiple special needs!  It’s blog you will want to return to again and again.
