This book has a look at persons who have, since early childhood, had significant difficulties in communicating and controlling behaviours and making themselves understood. The authors suggest that many of the challenges to communicating stem from movement differences. These differences in movement are unique to every individual and each should e supported in a very individualised and personal way. The authors challenge technologies that measure intelligence by observing communication.
