Just as autism is a continuum of disorders, it is associated with a broad range of neurodevelopmental, social, and communication deficits. For individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) has a major impact on their daily lives, often reducing the occurrence of challenging behaviors. Aided Augmentative Communication for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders is a practical guide to the field, offering readers a solid grounding in ASD, related complex communication needs (CCN), and AAC, especially visual and computer-based technologies. Widely used interventions and tools in AAC are reviewed—not just how they work, but why they work—to aid practitioners in choosing those most suited to individual clients or students. Issues in evaluation for aided AAC and debates concerning its usability round out the coverage. Readers come away with a deeper understanding of the centrality of communication for clients with ASD and the many possibilities for intervention. Key areas of coverage include: AAC and assessment of people with ASD and CCN. Interdisciplinary issues and collaboration in assessment and treatment. AAC intervention mediated by natural communication partners. Functional communication training with AAC. The controversy surrounding facilitated communication. Sign language versus AAC. Aided Augmentative Communication for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders is an essential resource for clinicians/practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in such fields as child and school psychology, speech pathology, language education, developmental psychology, behavior therapy, and educational technology.

The present study evaluated the effects of online training on educators knowledge and use of the system of least prompts (SLP) to support the communication of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). A quasi-experimental pre/post test group design with switching replications was used to measure the knowledge, planning, and implementation of SLP. The three dependent variables, were: (a) percent correct on knowledge of system of least prompts, measured by a 30-item multiple choice quiz, (b) percent correct on performance of planning for system of least prompts, measured by a task analysis checklist, and (c) percent correct on performance of SLP implementation during teleconference role-plays, measured by a task analysis checklist. Results indicate that the training was effective in increasing educators knowledge of SLP as well as the ability to plan for SLP. Implementation of SLP also increased over time, however, data analysis did not support the conclusion that this result was directly related to the online training alone. Additional results suggest that the participants viewed online instruction, with teleconference role-plays and case studies, as a socially valid activity. Participants reported learning a valuable skill and as a result of the training were more confident working with individuals who use AAC. Implications, limitations, and directions for future research are also discussed.
