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.
