Perspectives, SIG 12, Vol. 3, Part 3, 2018
Hurting, Alper, and Berkowitz
discussed the financial and ethical implications of preventable adverse events.
The authors stress the need to use a multipronged approach, which increases
awareness of and support for speech-language pathology services. Ogletree,
McMurry, Schmidt, and Evans considered the three realities facing augmentative
and alternative communication (AAC) providers. These included: (a) users who
are not homogeneous with respect to culture and language, (b) a traditional
team-based AAC assessment process that may not be the preferred route, and (c)
assumptions about AAC symbol transparency that are not supported by data.
Caron, Holyfield, Light, and McNaughton explored displaced talk using video
visual speech displays (VSDs). The findings revealed that there is potential in
utilizing video VSD to support participation for displaced talk in individuals
with autism spectrum disorder. When using VSD’s, the individual in the study
takes more communication turns and is more engaged in his social interactions.
