Non-electronic communication aids (short summary)

Low
technology
communication

This paper explored support for non-electronic communication aids. These low-tech forms of AAC may be just as valuable as high-tech aids for adults with disabilities, but most government policy and research literature addresses electronic communication aids, or speech-generating devices. The Non-Electronic Communication Aids Scheme, a pilot project run in Victoria, Australia, demonstrated that adults with a variety of diagnoses can benefit from non-electronic aids, and the project received a greater demand than it could accommodate. Future evaluation of AAC services should incorporate outcome measures that demonstrate the value of AAC to funding bodies in order to support future AAC services.
