What was the aim of the study? This study reviewed the literature on AAC for infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities under the age of three years.
Why was the paper written? The learning experiences of children's first three years of life can influence later brain development, but these experiences may be lessened if caregivers cannot recognize children's communicative behaviours. Early access to AAC can benefit children's early intentional communication, but most literature on AAC relates to older age groups.
