Description: Approaching severe communication disorders from an intervention perspective, this trusted resource thoroughly prepares students and practicing professionals to serve individuals with augmentative and alternative communication needs. In this revised third edition, professionals working or preparing to work with children and adults who use AAC will get new and expanded content on adults with degenerative language or cognitive disorders, adults with acquired disabilities, students who use AAC in general education classrooms, use of capability assessment to determine needs and identify AAC options, and the most recent AAC devices and interventions. Readers will still have everything that made the earlier editions of this text so useful: extensive 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. A comprehensive textbook for students in introductory courses and a valuable reference for in-service educators and therapists, this book will help professionals guide children and adults as they increase their communicative competence and participate more fully in all aspects of life.
