This guide has been developed to help families and carers of children with severe or profound intellectual disabilities to understand more about communication challenges and to suggest helpful strategies to improve communication. This guide looks at communication within a partnership and considers the skills and challenges for both people within communication exchanges. Professionals working with families and carers of children with severe or profound intellectual disabilities may also find this guide informative. Some children with severe to profound intellectual disabilities also show signs of autism or have underlying genetic syndromes or sensory or physical conditions that mean their needs are very complex so we have taken these into consideration when writing this guide.
