SAID is guided by the principle of Total Communication. This is a multi-level approach which recognizes the needs of the deaf children and their right to all forms of Communication available to develop language and academic competence. Total Communication includes all language modalities: child-devised gestures, sign language, speechreading, fingerspelling, and other modes that can aid in the language development of the child.
