AAC Consideration Materials and Checklists

AAC Consideration Materials and Checklists

By Samuel Sennott

What do we have to consider when we consider AAC?

In this post, I have gathered a set of resources to help aide in the process of considering AAC. The downloadable PDF document is meant as a conversation starter. Here are a set of resources I found on the internet. What can we add? What works? I would like to hear from you!

In the end, I believe that the most important overarching consideration is dignity, then followed by self expression of the individual.

  1. Hi Sam – Nice list of resources for ways to consider readiness for AAC. This topic is addressed from a developmental perspective in the research for the Stages Framework. It does not appear that I can attach the checklist file here. Would you like to put it on your wiki? I will send it to you via email. Mads

  2. Sam you may wish to check the WATI link- I think it is the old one. Try http://www.wati.org/?pageLoad=content/supports/free/index.php Communication is chapter 3. With specific questions related to communication. The forms for the communication section are listed towards the bottom of this page.
    I also like http://www.communicationmatrix.org/ Charity Rowland’s work for students with significant and multiple challenges.
