United Response Communication Resource (October 2015) written by Dr Bradshaw. This invites readers to think about communication from different perspectives; for example, from the viewpoint of people with physical disabilities who might be able to understand more than they can say, or from the perspective of individuals on the autistic spectrum, who might be able to say more than they can understand.
