PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the communication skills of a person who uses AAC to communicate. In my experience, it has been difficult to find a formal evaluation that looks at all the areas that this informal evaluation examines. I created it for several of my clients who were working on more advanced concepts than just identifying symbols or requesting. As it is informal, there are no norms. It is strictly criterion based, in that you can get a percentage of how well your client does in a particular area.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

This evaluation is targeted at clients who are already using an established method of AAC. Specifically, the following areas should already be established to the specific needs of the client prior to administration:

• familiarity with symbols on the device
• appropriate number of symbols/folders on each communication page
• appropriate size and placement of the symbols
• method of selection (i.e., scanning, direct selection)

Additionally, it is not aimed at our “low-functioning” clients. This is more for clients who have a relative understanding that their device is for communication and uses it to do so. It is best for a re-evaluation situation and with a client that you are already familiar with; as it is admittedly difficult, at times, to truly know the communication abilities of non-familiar client who is non-verbal and uses AAC.

AREAS TARGETED:

I. Navigating to a specific button/folder
II. Identifying a need/want given a specific scenario
III. Commenting on a specific situation
IV. Identifying categories
V. Formulating grammatically correct sentences given a corresponding picture
VI. Formulating grammatically correct questions given a specific scenario
VII. Answering a variety of basic wh- questions
VIII. Answering questions related to a single sentence
IX. Answering questions related to a two-sentenced passage
X. Answering questions related to a three-sentenced passage

Detailed scoring instructions for each section is included as is the answer key. Please note that the formatting on the preview is "off" in terms of the numbering in the sections but in the pdf file it is correct. I couldn't figure out how to fix the preview.
