My Communication Methods

I communicate in many different ways including American Sign Language, letterboard, my iPad, and through my facial expressions. I am aware this isn’t traditional, but it works for me. Having multiple methods helps me communicate most effectively in the situation I’m in. I hope these videos help and I would love to answer any of your questions!

I use sign language to communicate when I am on the go and need something quickly. It’s really helpful when I’m in public and don’t have time to waste.
My letterboard is my main method of communication. I use it in therapy, at school, and with family.
This is my Ipad. I am still learning how to use it, so it takes me a longer time, but I really like it! I use TouchChat and it has a keyboard, Emoji board, and a board where I can program sayings I like. I like using it to prepare answers to say out loud in class. Here is what I programmed to tell my classmates on my first day of school. I hope to use the keyboard on it all the time independently.


  1. Thanks again Mitchell. My son is almost 7 and uses a few different methods as well. I hope one day he can type his thoughts like you do.
