Autism Spectrum Disorders and AAC is a book written to help children, adolescents, and adults with autism spectrum disorders and to give them in-depth information on a wide range of evidence-based AAC methods and technologies. The book talks about the tremendous positive impact on communication, social skills, and behavior augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can have. Editors Pat Mirenda and Teresa Iacono partner with more than 30 other experts, including the Institute on Disability's own Michael McSheehan, Rae Sonnenmeier, and Cheryl Jorgensen, Through clear and compelling examinations of research studies, professionals discover how these AAC interventions can be used to promote children's natural speech and language development, expand literacy skills, modify challenging behavior, build children's social interaction skills, and help adolescents and adults develop strong social networks within their community. Essential for SLPs, OTs, PTs, educators, and other direct service providers, this book gives readers a complete understanding of the diverse AAC options- knowledge they can use to help people with autism spectrum disorders develop the communication and social skills they need to succeed.
