Communication
A communication disability is a barrier or barriers affecting the reception or transmittal of information. It may be severe enough to interfere with an individual academically, occupationally or socially. Problems with communication can have a minimal to huge impact and can define various disabilities.
 
For people with a hearing impairment or who are deaf, communication becomes difficult because of their inability to receive the information they are given.  With autism, communication is often difficult due to an inability to process received information within the brain, which may result in a speech and language impairment.  Although there are many types and causes for communication disabilities, these two in particular may limit an individual in school, on the job, or within a social network.

Fortunately, our knowledge of speech and hearing has expanded due to the research by professionals in medicine and allied fields, such as special education, speech and language, audiology, rehabilitation, child development and other disability technology.  These experts have been studying communication and applying modern techniques to the issues at hand.  Assistive technology professional have developed numerous new strategies, software and tools for aiding, augmenting and teaching both students as well as adults with language and communication disabilities.
