Communicating With Non-Verbal Wish Kids

One of the cornerstones of Make-A-Wish is ensuring that we grant a child’s one true wish … that we give life to that particular child’s vision of life at its best. But what happens when a child’s medical condition impedes the ability to communicate? Make-A-Wish staff members and volunteers have a solution. Georgianna, a wish granter for Make-A-Wish Connecticut who has granted more than 150 wishes, shares how she overcomes this challenge. She provides some great insights for people curious about how Make-A-Wish works – and even for other wish granters around the country.
