Providers of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) face myriad challenges in a rapidly changing and developing field. This solutions-oriented text prepares professionals to face those challenges with a can-do perspective. Featuring contributions from prominent AAC researchers and providers, as well as actual AAC users, this resource traverses a wide range of scenarios that clinicians deal with on a daily basis.
This book is divided into five sections – with each chapter offering a different evidence-based solution. Part I provides an introduction and basis for the rest of the book. Part II focuses on the unique challenges of providing AAC in childhood, whereas Part III centers on dealing with adult disorders. In Part IV, the authors delve into special populations and issues, such as assisting individuals with multiple disabilities. In Part V, clinicians will find tips for becoming a solutions-oriented provider.
