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.

Adam’s experiences with different AAC systems

different
AAC
systems

I am a speech and language therapist and want to share the story of a young man with you. ‘Adam’ is now nearly 19 and I have known him since he was seven. He has always been a friendly young man who likes to help. He gets his message across to you by taking you by the hand to something he wants, or by pulling at your jersey and pointing to things. He uses his voice well and by that you can tell when he is happy, concerned, uncertain, angry and a range of other emotions.

Over the years we have tried lots of different AAC systems with Adam
