The writings focus on helping individuals with congenital disabilities to develop an initial repertoire of functional communication skills. Particular emphasis is given to the importance of developmentally and chronologically appropriate educational and clinical practices. The writings provide a scholarly discussion of strategies and issues to advance the AAC field in general, and to develop AAC systems in particular. Topics cover a broad range of AAC issues, including intervention strategies, partner responsiveness, establishing basic communicative functions, empowering beginning communicators, research in AAC, communicative repair, access issues, selection techniques, and comprehension skills.
