Abstract

This article introduces the roles of parents and rehabilitation professionals in the provision of communication supports for children who cannot meet their communication needs through natural speech alone, also referred to as individuals with complex communication needs (CCN). The authors present a personnel framework, introduce intervention models of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) services, and address issues parents face in preparing to provide communication supports to children with CCN using AAC and assistive technology (AT).
