Review:

"In summary, this book meets its aims. It provides a discussion of many issues affecting the validity of current research on AAC interventions and suggests methods to strengthen future research. It presents a useful framework for implementing EBP in the AAC field and contains reviews of current evidence in topic areas. It will be a useful starting point for the clinicians implementing an EBP approach... It will be a welcome addition to researchers personal libraries and to libraries of institutions providing AAC services and to higher education establishments that train practitioners."
-INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION DISORDERS

"I love the book. It is the best resource available today for people who care about the scientific basis for what we do in AAC. Schlosser has made a landmark contribution to the field. I use it as a supplement in my courses, and as guidance in my research and writing. He has provided us with an excellent resource and has set the bar for other efforts in the area of evidence-based practice."
-Hank Bersani Jr., Ph.D., Chair, Division of Special Education, Western Oregon University, Monmouth, Oregon

"Schlosser and his contributors have been successful at delineating both the well-established and the less established areas of the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication, and have been able to demonstrate the need for research in the field.

This work sets the measure for future research. This short review of the 600-page book was only able to address most aspects briefly. Some chapters would have merited their own individual review, which is unfortunately not possible here.

In the years to come, this book will surely become one of the most commonly cited works in AAC literature and will become a reference work for many practitioners and researchers."
