We will present findings on characteristics of verbally-communicating vs. non-verbally communicating adults � their demographics, where they live, the kinds of services they receive; on their health and health care utilization; and quality of life outcomes. Particular attention will be paid to community inclusion, choice and decision-making, and relationships.
