The frequency and type of generic taik produced by typically developing preschool children ¥/as studied to support intervention decisions for children who use augmentative alternacommunication (AAC) systems. Generic talk requires little kno¥/tedge about communication partners (person or topic) to prompt interactions. Ten children ranging from 4:0 to 5:2 years participated in the study. They were development. Communication samples were collected at preschool home. No statistical differences were observed in generic at home school. Nearly hail of all utterances produced across the two classified as generic talk. The unique utterances to preschool children were categorized as confirmation/negation, comments, environmental control, and continuers.
