Publication TypeJournal Article
AbstractAugmentative Communication Employment Training and Supports (ACETS) is a program designed to increase the employment outcomes of people with significant disabilities who rely on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Employment-related outcomes for 6 participants are provided. Two different approaches to data collection were used: (1) a pre/post survey designed to collect data about each participant's employment-related skills and (2) an on-line reporting of progress throughout the year. Results indicated that participants increased their: job-hunting skills, 'managing disability and work' skills, overall communication skills, and information technology skills. In addition, there was an impact on actual employment and/or increase in earned income for four out of the six program participants.
