A: Parents often ask, “Can you actually test individuals if they have no or little language, if they have difficulty expressing themselves, or if they have behaviors which interfere with their ability to cooperate?” We do not need an individual to be able to talk to tell which colors are helpful. Behavior speaks louder than words. We can find the right color by watching how the child reacts to the color. Additionally, we really do not need cooperation in order to test the child since they do not need to follow directions.
