In general the individual consumers in this program are non-verbal or limited verbal and may have a various levels of communication skills, such as signing, limited vocal/verbal, use of picture communication and/or augmentative communication devices programmed for basic communication needs in varying community settings. The continued intervention of language and communication skills is considered vital to integration in community settings.
