November 12, 2010 - Honoring Communication

I work with a lot of clients who would be considered "low functioning" in clinical terms. However, they all are capable of communication, and it's up to me and others around them to honor their communication. This week I'll talk about what that means and how to do it.

Listen live at Noon EST, 11 CST, 10 MST, 9 PST. Or check out the archives at any time. You can also make sure you never miss an episode by subscribing through iTunes.
