Make a timeline of their communication changing and evolving over the years. Give conclusions of important aspects of communication history enabling employment.
2. Watch the documentary “Only God Could Hear Me.” Write a review of the four people who used augmentative communication. What were their challenges in life and how they overcame them – specifically in terms of what role communication played in their lives.
