Summary: Approaching severe communication disorders from an intervention perspective, this trusted resource thoroughly prepares students and practicing professionals to serve individuals with augmentative or alternative communication needs. A comprehensive textbook for students in introductory courses and a valuable reference for in-service educators and therapists, this revised and updated third edition incorporates the most up-to-date research and developments in the AAC fi
eld. Professionals working or preparing to work with children and adults who use AAC will get new and expanded content, including
  • a chapter on adults with degenerative language or cognition disorders
  • more research on adults with acquired disabilities
  • information about supporting students who use AAC in general education classrooms
  • updated and expanded information on capability assessment
  • updated terminology throughout the book to reflect the recommendations of the International Society of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC) and the World Health Organization
  • new figures and examples that reflect the most recent AAC devices and interventions
Readers will still have everything that made the earlier versions so useful: in-depth coverage of AAC assessment, intervention planning, and the many different types of congenital and acquired communication disorders (see sidebar), plus a step-by-step guide to clinical application. With this new edition of a highly respected volume, current and future professionals will help both children and adults increase their communicative competence so they can participate more fully in all aspects of life.

FREE Course Companion Web Site! Updated and expanded for the new edition, this web site will include chapter objectives; dozens of links to disability organizations; and a printable, searchable version of an extensive AAC glossary.
