This review aimed to determine whether participants with developmental disabilities preferred certain types of AAC. The review included seven studies with twelve participants. Eight of these participants preferred speech generating devices, and four preferred picture exchange systems, though this result must be interpreted with caution due to the very small size of the studies. Incorporating individual preferences into an AAC intervention could improve the control that individuals with developmental disabilities have over their decisions and lives.

What was the aim of the study? The authors reviewed studies that determined the type of AAC that individuals with developmental disabilities preferred.

Why was the paper written? Individuals with developmental disabilities may often benefit from AAC, which puts clinicians, families and users in the position of selecting which type of AAC may best serve individual circumstances. Accounting for the user's perspective is an important step in promoting self-determination and could possibly affect the outcomes of the AAC intervention.
