The loss of speech in adulthood due to acquired neurological disorders causes enormous life changes, as the individual must learn a new way or several ways of communicating. This book explores the transition, whether gradual or immediate, from traditional speech to the use of augmentative and alternative communications (AAC). It includes an in- depth look at the six most frequent communication interfering neurological disorders: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington and Parkinson's diseases, traumatic brain injuries, primary progressive aphasia and dementia, as well as discussions on how the social, medical and technological advances will affect future treatment. The authors hope to help readers learn how to help AAC users establish new communication roles and integrate natural speech patterns into AAC. Annotation c.
