Abstract

In this study, the learning styles and preferences of preprofessional students enrolled in an introductory augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) course were investigated. The specific purposes of the present study were to examine preprofessional students' (1) achievement goal orientation, (2) computer technology interest, and (3) learning mode preferences regarding AAC. The results revealed that preprofessional students were statistically assigned to four distinctive clusters with regard to their achievement goal orientation. Their interest in computer technology was relatively low, and they preferred individual and small-group learning opportunities as compared with direct instruction in new technology.
