Communication Bill of Rights

In 1992, the National Joint Committee for the Communication Needs of Persons with Severe Disabilities came up with the communication bill of rights.  It asserts that:

“All people with a disability of any extent or severity have a basic right to affect, through communication, the conditions of their existence.”

This means that EVERY person with a disability, no matter how “severe,” has the right to express herself and make choices about her life.

Please consider posting this poster in your classroom to recognize that all students have a voice!
