Laubscher, E. & Light, J. (2019, November). Effecting System Change to Improve Outcomes for Individuals Who Require AAC. Poster presentation at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Conference, Orlando, FL.
Abstract: Speech language pathologists traditionally support individuals who require AAC by addressing skills at the level of the individual, and less often address the system level variables that impact communication outcomes. This paper applies ecological systems theory and models of system change to understand how AAC professionals can address system level variables to improve communication outcomes for individuals who require AAC.
