When dealing with clients who are non-verbal, how can we ensure that they are part of the assessment, fitting and training process. How can we be sure that they receive what they need and are comfortable? Is it enough to just rely on the caregiver for these answers?
Part of the initial interview is to find out from the primary caregiver how client communicate. This will help determine how to proceed. If this is a client that does not have any means of communication at all and does not show signs of discomfort in any way, then you have to fit as best as you can and follow up with caregivers who will be able to check skin and posture over some days.
