A student who currently uses reflexive behaviors to express a change in an internal/physiological state. The communicative partner interprets the student’s behaviors. Alternatively, the student’s current behaviors are intentional, but not intentionally communicative. Some of these behaviors serve a communicative function, since the communication partner interprets them as communicative. The student operates directly on objects and people, rather than using an object to attract a person’s attention or using a person to obtain a desired object
