Reading Comprehension in AAC

Karen Erickson
2003 ASHA Leader  
The ability to read, specifically to read silently with comprehension, has a positive impact on school success, employability, independence, and autonomy, as well as providing a means for lifelong learning, entertainment, and introspection. For people who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), this ability carries each of these benefits, as well as enhanced face-to-face communication and the added ability to participate in asynchronous communication.
