“We have discovered increasingly that communication has only 1 prerequisite; and it has nothing to do with mental age, chronological age, mathematical formulae, or any other models that have been developed to decide who is a candidate and who is not. That is because breathing is the only prerequisite that is relevant to communication.” Pat Mirenda, 1992
