Developing communication systems for people
with language problems is the goal of several research
Communicate directly with the client. Do not try to finish the client’s sentence or fill in words. Allow extra
time for the client to think and form responses.
The first step in interacting is to achieve a successful
introduction. If the client knows your name and purpose, cooperation is more likely.
If possible, learn how
the client communicates (signing, writing, touch) and
then encourage him or her to become actively involved
in the communication process.
