Behavior Communicates.

Our actions tell people a lot. Without talking, A person communicates by action.

The way a person acts tell us how they are feeling. We can get an idea of what a person is thinking by how they behave. People let us know if they understand us by what they do.

We call the kind of technology a person needs ‘assistive technology’.
