Jordyn Zimmerman recently graduated with her bachelors degree in education policy from Ohio University. Diagnosed as autistic, Jordyn did not have access to a communication system until 2014, at the age of 18 years old. She writes for Learning Disability Today about how the world can be made more inclusive of autistic people who use alternative and augmentative communication (AAC).
