Enhancing AAC for Adults
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs:
0.3
3.0
People with severe communication disorders often benefit from the use of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). As technology has advanced and people have become more comfortable using a wide variety of programs, patient expectations about how AAC systems look and feel have also increased. In addition, programs and tools that are used daily, such as Facebook and Twitter, provide alternative communication options for people who have difficulty with face-to-face interactions. This journal self-study explores preferences about topics and types of visual supports as well as information about how people who use AAC can expand their communication using social media. Clinicians working with adults who use AAC can apply this information to improve decisions about methods and types of communication supports and maximize patient success.
