I’m not a mind-reader

I am not a mind reader (and neither are you), by Dana Nieder. “If we assume that in a particular situation, a certain sound/word/sign/gesture always means more or less the same thing, then we begin to pigeonhole our child’s communication, and to (inadvertently, unintentionally) sell them short.” Dana advocates the use of AAC for communication-challenged children, and this is one of the best explanations I have read for doing so.
