(5.20) Can my child get communication services and equipment if she is non-oral or nonverbal?

Yes.  If your child is non-oral or non-verbal, you may want to ask the district to contract with a non-oral communications specialist to do an assessment.  Depending on the results of the assessment, the IEP team may decide that your child needs specialized services such as a computerized communications device and instruction in using this device in order to benefit from special education.  See questions related to Assistive Technology below.
