Study conducted to evaluate the performance of nine children ages four to fourteen who used augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems before and after a weeklong aided language stimulation intervention program. The exact AAC systems the participants used are listed in table format, along with the number of years the participant had used the device. The following systems were utilized: (1) DynaMyte, (2) Pathfinder, (3) E-Talk, (4) DynaVox, and (5) a communication board. The results indicated that use of these devices improved the participants’ overall communication patterns, while the communication board was more effective when compared with the more high-tech devices. Implications for future research are discussed.
Assistive Products Discussed: E-TALK (MODELS CS 5500, CS 6400, & CS 8400)
