Speech-Generating Devices Used at Home by Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Preliminary Assessment
University of Borås, School of Business and IT.
2009 (English)In: Focus on Autism and other developmental disabilities, ISSN 1088-3576, E-ISSN 1538-4829, Vol. 24, no 2, 104-114 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Three children diagnosed within the autism spectrum between the ages of 5 and 7 years at different stages of communication development were supplied with speech-generating devices (SGDs) in their homes. The parents were taught to introduce the SGDs into home routines and the effects were evaluated naturalistically. Videotapes recorded by the parents before and during SGD use were coded with respect to communication effectiveness, mode, role in turn taking, and engagement in activity. Findings varied among the children and activities, but an increased level of communication effectiveness was seen during SGD use for all children. Variations of outcome among the three children and factors of importance for effective SGD use in the homes of children with autism spectrum disorders are discussed.
