Publication Date: March 2004
Paper discusses the relevance of evidence-based practice in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Evidence-based practice is an approach to clinical and educational practice that places emphasis on the importance of integrating quality research evidence into the decision-making process. An examination of current research on the AAC decision-making process is provided, as is a brief history of evidence-based practice and its application to other disciplines. The process of evidence-based practice is illustrated via case example, while the key factors involved in implementation into the AAC decision-making process are discussed.
