SIG 12 Perspectives Vol. 21, No. 2, June 2012

In this issue of Perspectives, we explore a number of AAC devices, including a visual display tool designed to promote communication. We also include a qualitative case study of people who use high-tech devices, a discussion of text messaging as a communication strategy, and a comparison of AAC iPad applications.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • list the strategies used to enhance communication with patients in acute rehabilitation settings who have speech and language disorders
  • list the available sources for further clinical training in AAC and how different levels of experienced clinicians can best learn the new information
  • describe communication challenges experienced by AAC users and the features of AAC devices that address these challenges
  • identify the benefits of text messaging to an individual who relies on AAC
  • describe an advantage and challenge associated with using personal computing tablets for AAC purposes, while gaining the skills to match iPad applications to a client’s needs
