In this study, related to McLay et al 2015, the authors investigated whether two boys with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) could be taught to request continuation of toy play using ‘more’ using three different augmentative and alternative communication systems; signing, picture exchange and a speech generating device (SGD), whether this learning would be maintained over time and whether they would show a preference for any of the AAC systems over the others.

They found that signing was the least successful AAC modality and that the SGD was preferred by both participants. The authors suggest that this might be due to the reinforcement given by the voice output system but indicate that further investigations into this are needed.
