The effects of speech ability (speaking versus non-speaking) and type of AAC presentation scheme (static versus dynamic) on vocabulary recognition were examined for children and adolescents with cerebral palsy using an extensive test-with-feedback procedure. Participants initially made fewer errors on the static scheme than on the dynamic scheme, primarily because of the low noun error rates associated with the static scheme. Error rates for presentation schemes became equivalent by the third… Expand
Assessing Comprehension of Spoken Language in Nonspeaking Children with Cerebral Palsy: Application of a Newly Developed Computer-Based Instrument
TLDR
The development of an instrument to assess comprehension of spoken language in children with severe cerebral palsy who cannot speak, and for whom standard language assessment measures are not appropriate due to severe motor impairment, is described. Expand
Emergence of working memory in children using aided communication
Purpose – Working memory (WM) is a key component of effective and efficient communication in typical communicators, with, potentially, even greater significance for those who benefit fromExpand
Cognitive and language acquisition in typical and aided language learning: A review of recent evidence from an aided communication perspective
TLDR
A review of theory and research relating to language acquisition in typical and aided language learning in AAC provides a summary to support practice and future research activity. Expand
La programmation des contenus des aides à la communication avec sortie vocale chez les jeunes enfants qui ont des besoins complexes en communication
The objective of this thesis was to discover ways of facilitating the selection of speechgenerating devices (SGD) and the programming of its vocabulary, among children aged 4 to 6 who have complexExpand
Experiences from a support group for families of preschool children in the expressive AAC user group
TLDR
The experiences of a support group for parents of young children with age-expected language comprehension who use aided communication expressively are outlined, with the aim of increasing the parents’ confidence and competence. Expand
Identifying, locating, and sequencing picture communication symbols: Contributions from developmental visuospatial and temporal memory
Abstract This study investigated visuospatial and temporal working memory through assessment of feature binding abilities of typically developing first-, third-, and fifth-grade school-age children.Expand
The language and communication attributes of graphic symbol communication aids – a systematic review and narrative synthesis
TLDR
There is a paucity of evidence from studies and that decisions must thus be based on other information and factors, which suggests that vocabulary design and organization, symbol system and encoding method, and the choice of vocabulary selection method are attributes that clinicians may carefully review in order to inform decisions.

SAK: Scanning ambiguous keyboard for efficient one-key text entry
TLDR
The design and evaluation of a scanning ambiguous keyboard (SAK) is presented and the usefulness of the approach for persons with severe physical disabilities was shown in a case study with a software implementation of the idea explicitly adapted for that target community. Expand

The fruitfulness of a nomothetic approach to investigating AAC: comparing two speech encoding schemes across cerebral palsied and nondisabled children.
TLDR
It is suggested that a nomothetic research approach that includes results of children without disabilities can usefully illuminate consequences of important variables in AAC systems. Expand
The Semantic Organization Patterns of Young Children: Implications for Augmentative and Alternative Communication
TLDR
A graphic symbol arrangement task was used to investigate how 20 children between 4;0 and 5;11 years of age organized linguistic concepts, and indicated that children purposefully arranged an average of 40% of vocabulary items, and tended to organize concrete items in pairs or small groups according to event schema. Expand
Transparency and recall of symbols among intellectually handicapped adults.
TLDR
Examination of the transparency and recall of symbols representing three parts of speech from three different graphic symbol systems among adults with intellectual handicaps suggested that the Picture Communication System (PCS) and Picsyms were more transparent and easier to learn than Blissymbols. Expand
The comparative translucency of initial lexical items represented in five graphic symbol systems and sets.
TLDR
The comparative translucency within and across five aided augmentative and alternative symbol systems or sets for symbols representing three parts of speech was investigated and indicates that translucencies varies among systems or set and among parts ofspeech. Expand
Many-to-one and one-to-many associative learning in a naturalistic task.
TLDR
Consideration of the results and the manner in which the coding scheme is used recommends many-to-one training in which vocabulary items are given as stimuli and icons are learned as responses. Expand
The Effects of Representativeness and Concreteness on the "Guessability" of Blissymbols.
Twenty student volunteers, naive to Blissymbols, were asked to “guess” the meaning of 64 Blissymbols, each presented without their word gloss. The symbols and their verbal labels were each variedExpand
TWO FACES OF SIGN: ICONIC AND ABSTRACT *
TLDR
This paper shows that while in special circumstances the deaf do play on iconic elements of certain signs for special effects, iconicity plays no observable role in the coding of signs in short-term memory and the abstract formational parameters definitely dominate. Expand
Effects of initial element teaching in a story-telling context on Blissymbol acquisition and generalization.
TLDR
Results indicate that the initial teaching of elements did not contribute to compound acquisition and retention, but did facilitate generalization to untrained compound Blissymbols. Expand
Roles of graphic symbols in the language acquisition process for persons with severe cognitive disabilities
Symbols play dual roles for nonspeaking persons learning language via instruction. They are the medium by which internal representations of the world are expressed and they provide an inference aboutExpand
Reaction time in relation to display size and correctness of response in forced-choice visual signal detection
TLDR
Stimulus displays, presented tachistoscopically, were randomly selected consonant letters distributed in random subsets of cells of a matrix, and relationships appear to require a modification of one assumption in the earlier proposed serial processing model for tACHistoscopic perception. Expand
