Augmentative and Alternative Communication: An Interactive Clinical Casebook is a multimedia educational tool, available both as a DVD and as an e-learning, web-based program, that will be a valuable resource to instructors, students, and practicing clinicians. It presents 13 clinical stories written and narrated by augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) experts. These stories present a framework for assessment and treatment service delivery across a wide variety of people with complex communication needs. Key features include: Narration: Each chapter features audio commentary (and written transcriptions) from the authors that illustrate their decision-making process in determining an approach to assessment and intervention. Multimedia content: Chapters feature videos and photos, as well as sample clinical forms, notes, and reports. Diverse selection: Chapters span across age ranges and address various developmental and acquired disabilities. Consumer perspective: Provided within the Introduction chapter is a preface by Noah Trembly, a man who uses AAC, that provides the consumer perspective on this resource. In 2014, Trembly was selected to present the 18th Annual Edwin and Esther Prentke Distinguished Lecture at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association annual convention. The many unique benefits of this innovative e-learning tool include: Instructors. This online casebook bridges classroom and practicum instruction and facilitates discussion of clinical issues and techniques. Although every person who uses AAC is different, the structure of assessment and intervention planning is similar across all chapters. The authors' commentary on assessment and intervention, available through audio or as a transcript, expands the possibilities for use in or out of the classroom. Students. In a field where evidence and theory must merge with clinical practice, students need practical examples of people who use AAC and access to experts who model best practice. As this casebook is 100% digital, students receive expert models from professionals in the AAC field and have access to explore a vast array of AAC-related topics. Practicing Clinicians. The range of individual disorders within AAC is far-reaching and a clinician's area of focus is always subject to change. This casebook provides clinicians with ready access to various models of service delivery for quick reference and detailed instruction on specific areas of AAC practice. ------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: For MAC users, the DVD requires an Intel-based Mac OSX 10.5 or later.
