Check out this new series of videos from Perkins.org about how to create a communication portfolio. These portfolios are designed to help students transition from one program to another by showing the new teachers and therapists how the child best communicates and learns.

The approach is very individualized and, as they say, "person-centered." Students who are non-verbal are still able to make their needs known, they just do so in more subtle ways and it's important that everyone working with the students know how to read them.
