Background

Up to a quarter of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) do not develop functional speech. Many of them rely on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems.

While there is some evidence supporting the use of AAC with children with ASD it is still unclear how much its use has been taught to develop social communication and whether interventions effect sustained and meaningful change.
