Abstract

This paper explores issues related to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) interventions for aphasia. Recent literature on functional communication treatment is reviewed with a goal of clarifying how aphasiologists see AAC fitting into aphasia treatment. AAC assessment models are proposed as a method for achieving the objectives of functional communication treatment. Recent AAC and aphasia treatment efficacy studies are critically examined for their use of accepted AAC assessment models. Recommendations address the need to incorporate AAC assessment when addressing questions of effectiveness, efficiency, and generalization in AAC aphasiology research.
