Ekman, M., Light, J., & Currall, J. (November 14, 2015). Just-in-Time AAC Technology Effects on Communicative Turns of Young Children with Complex Communication Needs. Poster presentation at ASHA: Denver, Colorado. [Handout]
This poster presents a case study examining the effects of an AAC application that supports just-in-time (JIT) programming of vocabulary during interactions. Use of the JIT app resulted in an increase in the number of communication turns taken by a 33-month-old child with pontocerebellar hypoplasia resulting in complex communication needs.
Learner Outcome 1: Describe major elements of the study design
Learner Outcome 2: Discuss the authors’ conclusions
Learner Outcome 3: Identify possible implications for practice
