Background

This paper presents a systematic review of research in the effects of communication partner modelling of aided augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) on the language acquisition of children with complex communication needs (CCN).

Typically developing children are usually exposed to a wide range of speech models and interactions in the first years of life, before they begin to use recognisable speech. These models support their acquisition of spoken language.

Review

This paper presents a systematic review of research into the effects of communication partner modelling of aided augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) on the language acquisition of children with complex communication needs (CCN).

AAC modelling has been suggested as a possible way to improve the language input/output balance for emerging AAC users. This can be referred to as aided language stimulation, augmented input, natural aided language and aided AAC modelling.

Background

 It is estimated that up to 50% of people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) do not use functional speech and there is evidence to suggest that augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can improve the quality of life for non-verbal children with ASD by supporting them to increase their communication. There are many different forms of AAC available including high-tech systems that can be used to generate speech and allow for spontaneous expression.

The Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) approach to teaching language using a voice output communication aid (VOCA) was used over a five week period with eight children, aged between 4 and 12, who had ASD. Parents and teachers were also trained to use the LAMP approach. The study aimed to test whether augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems can improve the functional communication of children with ASD in their daily lives.

The researchers used the LAMP approach in addressing 4 aims:
