SIG 12 Perspectives Vol. 20, No. 2, June 2011
In this issue of Perspectives on Augmentative and Alternative Communication we address the new AAC systems being developed for persons with complex communication needs (CCN). We also describe and compare new interfaces and vocabulary choices, the roles of technology in AAC intervention, and the learning styles of the various adults who provide support to the AAC user.
You will be able to:
- identify and discuss several interface methods that have proven to be beneficial to persons with aphasia
- summarize current developments involving the Android operating system and AAC
- list two components of an utterance-based AAC system where technological enhancements could be used
- define the challenges and opportunities presented by AAC technologies
- identify the key elements of successful AAC instruction in large (60+) in-person classes
