Abstract

There are a variety of mildly disabled individuals capable of natural speech who benefit from augmentative and alternative writing systems. This paper presents the case study of L.S., a young woman with severe fibrositis that inhibited her writing abilities during undergraduate and graduate school, as well as during her first job as a speech-language pathologist. Her alternative writing systems for a 10-year period are reviewed, her use patterns are documented during her graduate program, and the results of a communication needs assessment are reported.
