If your nose itches, you scratch it. If you can’t reach something, you ask someone to help you get it. But what if you can’t do either? Sometimes the best tools we have at our disposal are not high-tech. They can cost less than a cup of coffee but can be more valuable than a brick of gold. In this episode Louise and her oldest son, Pete, talk about the ABC Board and the gift of communication it gave them with Archer who had no movement, no voice, no ability to ask, request, or express, until with one letter at a time, we learn about ordinary and extraordinary needs. Louise also wonders about the level of intimacy one can have with professional friends.
