The Communication resource helps people with a communication difficulty to understand, think about and then express their views in a visual way using specially designed communication symbols on 4 topics relating to Communication:

Understanding – Receiving verbal, non-verbal and contextual communication

Expression – Producing verbal, non-verbal and contextual communication

Learning and Thinking – Learning and applying knowledge

Relationships – Interacting with people

This makes the World Health Organisation ICF framework meaningful and accessible.
