The rates of aphasia are on the increase across the world and in America alone approximately 100,000 people acquire aphasia every year. It is therefore important that practicing clinicians and pre-professional students have the resources that will allow them to gain both knowledge and skills to make informed decisions related to provision of AAC services to persons with aphasia. "Augmentative and Alternative Communication for Adults with Aphasia" is a text written for practicing clinicians, undergraduate and graduate students, assistive technologists, and other stakeholders who are interested in learning more about the communication needs and options for people with aphasia. Although there are several book chapters dedicated to aphasia in currently available textbooks in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), this is the first book dedicated entirely to AAC and aphasia. The book aims to: provide an overview of aphasia and various treatment approaches; also provide a comprehensive review of AAC intervention approaches for persons with aphasia; evaluate the efficacy of AAC intervention approaches that use technology, such as speech generating devices, and non-technological AAC approaches as part of a treatment package; examine the ways in which techniques and strategies can be applied to persons with aphasia; and, better understand how both direct stakeholders (i.e., persons with aphasia) as well as indirect stakeholders (e.g., close and extended family members, friends, and paid caregivers) feel about the effectiveness of AAC intervention in persons with aphasia.
