Please listen, it's my turn: Instructional approaches, curricula and contexts for supporting communication and increasing access to inclusion (short summary)

Four children with severe speech and physical impairments (SSPI) attended a four week summer school which used a 'language immersion' approach to language and literacy development and technology use. Their parents and carers were also involved in the programme which involved constant modelling of AAC use throughout all activities.
All four children made progress during the intervention period, but only two maintained this at follow up. Possible reasons for this are considered.
