This paper is the first in a series of two that use the principles and practices of Conversation Analysis (CA) in an examination of voice output communication aid (VOCA) use in two conversations, each involving a child with cerebral palsy with complex communication needs who used a VOCA and a peer without complex communication needs. The primary theme of this paper concerns how VOCA use is incorporated into children's peer interactions. A significant feature of each dyad is the way in which… Expand

Topics from this paper

Interaction between children with cerebral palsy and their peers 2: Understanding initiated VOCA-mediated turns
TLDR
Interactions between children with cerebral palsy who have complex communication needs and use voice output communication aids (VOCAs) and their naturally speaking peers are examined to explore how problems emerge for naturally speaking children in understanding initiated VOCA-mediated turns. Expand
Organizational patterns of interaction between children with severe speech and physical impairment and their everyday communication partners
!is study investigates the practice of achieving common understanding in aided Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). !e aims are to explore whether communicative contributions can beExpand
Communicative interaction between a non-speaking child with cerebral palsy and her mother using an iPadTM
There is a rapidly increasing range of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems available for children who cannot communicate orally. Finding the best system for any one user is aExpand
Speaker Transfer in Children's Peer Conversation: Completing Communication-aid-mediated Contributions
TLDR
Using the principles and findings from conversation analysis, features of speaker transfer in a conversation between a boy with cerebral palsy who has been provided with a voice-output communication aid (VOCA) and a peer without physical or communication difficulties are examined. Expand
Exploring interaction between a non-speaking boy using aided AAC and his everyday communication partners: features of turn organizing and turn design
This study investigates the practice of achieving common understanding in aided Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). The aims are to explore whether communicative contributions can beExpand
The role of active participation in interaction for children who use augmentative and alternative communication.
TLDR
The study stresses the importance of communication partners' abilities to balance and counterbalance the necessity to follow, share or sometimes inhibit a need to shape contributions to interaction, in order to enhance active participation for the child who uses AAC. Expand
The collaborative construction of non‐serious episodes of interaction by non‐speaking children with cerebral palsy and their peers
TLDR
The analysis presented here utilizes the principles and practices of Conversation Analysis to examine how non‐speaking children with cerebral palsy and their peers bring about and organize episodes of non‐serious interaction, and how both children collaborate in constituting the non‐ speaking child as playfully naughty. Expand
Language learning, recasts, and interaction involving AAC: background and potential for intervention
TLDR
The theoretical basis and empirical evidence for the use of different types of recasts as a major language learning catalyst are discussed, and what may account for their facilitative effects are discussed. Expand

Mother-child interaction revisited: communication with non-speaking physically disabled children.
TLDR
Interaction for children with severe motor and speech impairments becomes 'fossilized', changing little throughout childhood, and intervention should focus not only on the children, teaching them how to use their augmentative systems and to produce a full range of conversation skills, but also should focus on their carers.
