If you work with individuals with significant disabilities, chances are that you’ve had some questions from time to time. We wanted to be sure that everyone was aware of the resources of the National Joint Committee for the Communication Needs of Persons with Severe Disabilities, or the NJC, for short. The NJC is a consortium of professional organizations, such as ASHA, TASH, USSAAC, and ATAP. The NJC has been in existence since 1986 and offers a range of prAACtical resources on its website.

1. Communication Bill of Rights

2. Guidelines for Meeting the Communication Needs of Persons With Severe Disabilities including best practices for assessment, goal-setting, and intervention.

3. Qualifying people with significant disabilities for services

4. Frequently Asked Questions: Peruse these or send them your own and they will post the response.
