Pinto, Peg; Simpson, Cynthia; Bakken, Jeffrey P.
International Journal of Special Education, v24 n3 p99-109 2009
Communication skills are of great importance for children with developmental disabilities to be functional and independent in their own lives. This paper provides results of a comprehensive literature review on current researched-based intervention strategies that appear effective to increase communication skills for students who have severe disabilities. Researchers typically have combined intervention strategies and the actual effectiveness of isolated procedures is less clear. This review is aimed at investigating these isolated procedures and attempts to link research and practice in the area of communication. (Contains 1 table.)
