Wilkins, Robert L.; Means, Diane W.
Examined are ways in which adaptive aids make communication available to nonverbal severely physically handicapped persons. Techniques for initial assessment are described, including evaluation of outward orientation, motor control and binary choice system. The Herald, an electronic communication board, is said to meet criteria of adaptability, reasonable cost and maintenance, and promotion of self expression and independence. Use of the Herald in the classroom is reviewed. (CL)
