People with communication support needs have difficulties associated with one or more aspects of communication. Communication refers to all aspects of interpersonal communication. This includes verbal understanding, expressive language, speech and the capacity to understand someone's intended meaning rather than the words themselves. It also refers to literacy and other means by which individuals interact with one another. More specifically for the purposes of this review, it refers to the way in which individuals function in the public domain and interact with people that are in a position to affect their everyday lives. The key feature of communication is that it is both the medium and the message. It is important in its own right, in that an individual needs to be able to understand what others say and express themselves in order to function socially, and for the implications it has for all aspects of our lives, including accessing services, employment, education etc. Support refers to the activities put in place to support such individuals, whether at the request of the individuals themselves or at the recommendation of others, for example a doctor, a therapist or a social worker.
