Abstract

This is the first of two papers based on a 2-year study of nonspeaking patients served in acute care settings of University of Washington Hospitals. This paper describes one approach to evaluating and selecting augmentative communication systems for this special population. The screening protocols place particular emphasis on a hierarchy of assessment tasks designed to allow rapid decision making and minimal efforts in the acutely ill patient. In addition, this approach emphasizes a thorough assessment of communication needs related to communication partners, environment, and messages.
