Augmentative and Alternative Communication for Adults in Medical Settings

AAC services differ, depending on whether patients present with communication needs in the ICU, inpatient hospital ward, outpatient rehabilitation clinic, or home health setting. In this program, we discuss the multi-modal communication process, and identify strategies, as well as low- and high-tech solutions, for each medical setting. Principles of assessment and intervention that have been developed through expert practice are presented.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • explain the process of multi-modal communication used by persons in various health settings
  • list the components of an augmentative communication assessment for persons in the different medical settings
  • identify needs of AAC users in various medical settings
