A single case study aimed to look at whether taking part in a book reading intervention programme improved the expressive vocabulary of a 7 year old girl who used AAC. The study is described in some detail.

Increases were found in the total number and range of words used and the types of words these were. There was also an increase in the number of multi-word utterances. These gains were at least partially maintained at the follow up point.

During the intervention the child was also found to use an increased number of story elements, but this was not maintained after the intervention period ended.
