Communication is NOT speech!

Thank you to Dora Raymaker, autistic adult, (Autistic Disorder) for advocating for autistic people. When she blogged for on the "autism page," Raymaker did a wonderful job.

In the aforementioned post, Dora Raymaker advocates for me. Spoken language, especially speaking in complete sentences, can be highly challenging. Sometimes, I'm all "worded out." Thanks to the speech therapy I received from preschool until 8th grade, verbal communication, pragmatic language (includes figurative) and some social skills are easier to understand, interpret, utilize.
