This study evaluated the communicative interaction skills of seven young men (ages 19 – 23 years) who had used AAC systems for at least 15 years. Turn-taking patterns, use of communicative functions, and linguistic complexity were analyzed. Current performance was compared to the participants' skills when they were preschoolers and participated in another study of interaction skills (Light, ; Light, Collier, & Parnes, ). Results indicated that the turn distribution between partners was more… Expand
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 effect of pause time upon the communicative interactions of young people who use augmentative and alternative communication
TLDR
Investigating the effect of variation in partner-initiated pause time on the expressive communication of young people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication suggests the need for professionals providing AAC services to encourage communication partners to provide extended pauses during interactions.

Assessment of aided language comprehension and use in children and adolescents with severe speech and motor impairments
TLDR
There was considerable variation within the group of participants who used aided communication, and the results reveal a need to develop instruments with norms for aided language competence that can inform the implementation of interventions to support aided language development. Expand

TLDR
One of the more robust findings was that individuals tended to produce shorter utterances when they used graphic symbol-based AAC systems than would be expected, based on participant profiles; however, there appeared to be a developmental trend toward using longer utterances. Expand
Effects of it takes two to talk--the hanen program for parents of preschool children with cerebral palsy: findings from an exploratory study.
TLDR
It Takes Two to Talk may be associated with positive communication change for this group of children with nonprogressive motor disorders and their mothers and further investigation of its clinical effectiveness is warranted. Expand

Communicative performance of adolescents with severe speech impairment: influence of context.
TLDR
The communicative performance of 4 preoperational-level adolescents, using limited speech, gestures, and communication board techniques, was examined in a two-part investigation, finding no consistent pattern of mode usage was exhibited across the speaking peer interactions. Expand

TLDR
Pragmatic analysis of the sign and symbol utterances produced by 40 language-impaired, cerebral-palsied children in semi-structured conversational settings revealed severe restrictions in the range of communicative functions used, which suggests that overall neither augmentative mode facilitated greater communicative use than the other. 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.

TLDR
Comparisons between the Bliss and signing groups suggest that neither augmentative system facilitated greater progress in sign/symbol acquisition and use than the other, however, there was wide variability in performance among the children within each group. Expand
The use of communication boards in a residential setting: an evaluation.
TLDR
The authors present a method by which the spontaneous use of communication boards can be assessed as to actual functionality in meeting the students' communicative needs, and discuss the need to assess nonspeaking persons' use of augmentative systems outside the speech-language pathology setting.
