A definitive textbook for students in speech-language pathology, audiology, and communication sciences and disorders, Principles and Practices in Augmentative and Alternative Communication offers students an introduction to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and prepares them for working with clients with complex communication needs.

Editors Drs. Donald R. Fuller and Lyle L. Lloyd and their contributors provide a foundation for the development of assessment and intervention procedures and practices within the framework of the communication model and its major components: the means to represent, the means to select, and the means to transmit.

Principles and Practices in Augmentative and Alternative Communication consists of five major units:



An introduction to AAC, from its history to current practice
An overview of AAC symbols and a comprehensive discussion of aided and unaided symbols
A review of AAC technology
The components of AAC assessment: principles, vocabulary, symbol selection, and the prescription of AAC technology
AAC intervention: everything from the components of the intervention process to examples from specific cases and settings

Included with the text are online supplemental materials for faculty use in the classroom.

Students and professionals looking for a foundational textbook in the field of AAC will find Principles and Practices in Augmentative and Alternative Communication to be effective, contemporary, and practical.
