Video 2: How many ways are there to communicate?

Description: How many ways are there to communicate? This short video collage shows clips of a few folk from around Scotland who cannot speak, due to disability, but who CAN certainly communicate! They do so using a variety of different forms of 'Augmentative and Alternative Communication' (AAC). This film will give you a 'mini preview' of AAC in action. There are more ways to communicate than you think!
