John Bonvillian, a pioneer in the field of augmentative and alternative communication who retired from the University of Virginia’s psychology department in 2015, died May 8 in Charlottesville. He joined the faculty in 1978 and also had an appointment in the interdisciplinary linguistics program. Bonvillian, 69, was a developmental psycholinguist who worked for years on developing a simplified sign language that non-speaking children with disabilities, including autism, could easily learn.
If Emily Sun’s pockets are full of goodies to distract and delight small fry (from Paw Patrol and superhero stickers to “freezie spray” for a quick numbing before inserting IVs), her head is also a treasure trove of kidstuff.
