This study aims to document the path of Alessio and of team of professionals who followed him: this experience involved Alessio’s parents, his caregiver and the whole team of the Centre. Considering the severity of the clinical situation, a multiprofessional approach was needed, in order to improve Alessio situation and to make him more independent, in particular as far as communication was concerned. Alessio has maintained a good level of symbolic cognitive ability, slightly below the norm: although he can’t use verbal language, he has a high understanding and an overall good cognitive functioning. Thanks to his character, his availability and his will, he was able to self determine not only the choice of technological solutions, but his future in general.
