ASD & AAC* (*Augmentative and Alternative Communication)
For children, adolescents, and adults with autism, AAC can have a tremendous positive impact on communication, social skills, and behavior. Now there's a comprehensive, up-to-date research volume that shows professionals what today's most effective AAC methods are and why they're a perfect fit with a variety of learning approaches that work for people with autism. These evidence-based AAC interventions can be used to promote children's natural speech and language development, expand literacy skills, modify challenging behavior, build young children's social interaction skills, give children socially appropriate ways to express needs and preferences, and help adolescents and adults develop strong social networks within their community.
