Don't be afraid to be a superstar!People who use Alternative Communication often feel awkward about actually using it. They think they sound different. They think others don't want to wait to listen. But the truth is often just the reverse. It's just simply that other people feel awkward and don't know what to do. So break the ice! Start with some simple hellos, jokes, and stories. Once people are interested, they're hooked! And although it may always be a bit tough, it will be so much more rewarding!
