Abstract

Research and clinical experience both indicate that parents are excellent observers of communication in their children who rely on augmentative and alternative communication. However, parents and professionals may find themselves in conflict about how to interpret and support children's communication. This article outlines strategies for family-centered augmentative and alternative communication services that support parents in implementing their communication goals with their children.
