- Pp. 164-191 (28)

Stephen N. Calculator


This chapter discusses principles as well as assessment and intervention strategies designed to foster effective communication skills in individuals with Angelman Syndrome who rely on both pre-symbolic and symbolic methods of communication. Both unaided and aided methods of augmentative and alternative communication are considered. By virtue of the nature of their disabilities, coupled with recent research findings, all individuals with AS are not only deemed candidates for AAC but also potential users of high-tech AAC devices. A review of best practices related to providing AAC services to individuals with AS is presented along with information pertaining to parents' corresponding priorities.
