TitleSelecting Graphic Symbols for an Initial Request Lexicon: Integrative Review
Publication TypeJournal Article
AbstractThe establishment of an initial request lexicon is often targeted when introducing augmentative and alternative communication systems to beginning communicators. For many of these individuals, graphic symbols provide an effective way to communicate requests to others. Because there are literally dozens of graphic symbol sets and systems to choose from, interventionists face the dilemma of selecting those that are deemed appropriate. This article integrates theory and research concerning the selection of graphic symbols for an initial request lexicon. Directions for further research are articulated, and, when the evidence permits, suggestions for clinical practice are offered.
