Respecting privacy in AAC

Autism Acceptance Month challenges us to examine how we teach autonomy and privacy to people learning to use AAC. Alyssa Hillary is an Autistic graduate student in neuroscience, where they do AAC-related research. Their perspective on privacy and autonomy was so powerful that it needed its own blog, which they tell about in their own words here.

Everyone communicates. Communicating with others gives us connection and control in our lives. There are many ways to communicate - with facial expression, gestures, and with words and sentences. A key factor to successful communication is having language. Language gives us the words and ways to share our own thoughts and ideas, desires and wishes.
