The present study is aimed to assess the efficacy of a computer-based alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) program, for two children with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. Results show that both participants increase their communication skills during intervention and post-intervention phases. Undergraduate students involved as raters in a social validation procedure provide scores that are compatible with the hypothesis of rehabilitation worth of the intervention. These results support the clinical validity of the computer-mediate AAC intervention for children with multiple/profound disabilities.

Abstract

The present study is aimed to assess the efficacy of a computer-based alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) program, for two children with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. Results show that both participants increase their communication skills during intervention and post-intervention phases. Undergraduate students involved as raters in a social validation procedure provide scores that are compatible with the hypothesis of rehabilitation worth of the intervention. These results support the clinical validity of the computer-mediate AAC intervention for children with multiple/profound disabilities.
