Oregon Health and Science University. This document provides a summary of findings from an analysis of over 100 personal narratives from 70 authors worldwide. They provide insight into the lived experience of being a person who communicates through AAC and strategies for decreasing barriers.

Speaking of spelling, here's a news bulletin. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would be known as "EuroEnglish. In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".

Each passage starts with information about the author and most have a picture. Every author speaks to having to create his or her own lives, virtually creating a new culture with the use of AAC's.

This essential collection gives readers the opportunity to heat AAC users talk about their lives. Twenty-eight diverse individuals who use AAC, from teens to senior citizens, give first-person accounts of how living with AAC has affected them, what using AAC is all about, and what works (and doesn't work) for them as they face the daily challenges of communication. For speech-language pathologists, personal assistants, educators, and families, these touching and humorous stories give insight into how to improve communication supports for AAC users, from AAC users themselves.
  • Speaking Up and Spelling It Out used an open format consisting of essays, poems and interview. Each passage starts with information about the author and most have a picture. The editors clearly state that this is not the typical book revolving around AAC use. Truly, I found the topic of AAC use to be secondary to the authors experience with the device. Every author speaks to having to create his or her own lives, virtually creating a new culture with the use of AAC's. I enjoyed the glimpse into the histories of these augmented speakers (editors terminology for people who use AAC's to communicate) who have blossomed through the development of communication. Each story is full of hope, humor, and heart.

    Topics covered include the history of AAC's (from personal and development prospective), education, employment, public policy, multicultural issues, and my favorite, literacy. Several of the stories included bi-lingual strategies to championing their environment. Many of the authors felt that the struggle to be heard was what made them the fighters they are today. The augmented speakers talk about the most important issue is getting an AAC that suits the users need. The consensus is to use whatever is the quickest. Non-augmented speakers don't spend much time trying to figure out what an augmented speaker has to say. However, maneuvering around the professionals can be challenging as well.

    This book is an excellent source for anyone wanting to know more about the AAC users experience. Therefore, I not only recommend this for family, friends, and other augmented speakers; but, professionals as well. Nothing makes a better trainer than to understand your population. I am using it as a tool for an augmented speaker that is strengthening his literacy skills.

  • I am working with AAC users and experts on a "pioneer" project in Italy (...). I'm not a subject matter expert (I have an engineering background). Through this book I got an idea of what does it mean AAC for the people who are using it.
    The exposure is "easy-to-read" and pleasant even for "non experts" as I am and it opens your mind on a rich and interesting world...
