In these articles, authors explored various alternative access methods for augmentative and alternative communication with a variety of populations. One author introduces brain-computer interfaces (BCIs, reviews both the misconceptions about them and the important factors to consider when evaluating a BCI for use by someone with CCN. In another article, the author describes advances in access technology already being employed as access solutions to SGD’s and highlights areas for advancement and refinements of access technologies. Another author reviews research evidence related to eye tracking and gaze technologies with various populations. The final article focuses on teaching switch access for individuals who have significant communication, physical and sensory disabilities and who are unable to use direct selection. In this article, the use of switch access with scanning is explored in terms of how to teach motor/cognitive aspects with aided language receptive input and expressive use.
