AAC Camp as an Alternative School-Based Service Delivery Model: A Retrospective Survey
Dodd, Janet L.; Hagge, Darla K.
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v35 n3 p123-132 May 2014
School-based speech-language pathologists are obligated to apply evidence-based practice and document progress of their students' response to intervention in compliance with federal law. The purpose of this preliminary study was to explore the effects of an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)-based intervention provided in a camp format and begin the exploration of examining strategies to monitor and document progress. Through the use of a survey, data were also collected regarding the demographics of camp attendees and their response to the camp-based intervention model. Results indicated children with autism and intellectual disability comprised a significant portion of the children referred for this type of intervention, and positive gains were documented both in the areas of communicative behaviors and pragmatic use.
