  • 14. Language and Communication Framework
    AAC Linking Interaction and Technology
  • 15. As part of the AAC community, DynaVox believes:
    At the heart of every AAC device is the language system that is used.
    That this system should:
    encourage successful day to day, face to face, real time interaction
    support timely language and literacy skill use and development
    be age and level appropriate
  • 16. The InterAACT Framework
    Built on two core elements:
    Language Use
    Language Structure
  • 17. Language Use
    Relies on conversational messages that are designed to encourage interaction
    It focuses on interaction, conversation, quick messages and messages that are based on pre-programmed phrases and sentences
    Allows the ability to maintain and managethe flow of a conversation
  • 18. Language Structure
    Building blocks for developing higher level language skills
    Includes grammatical components that are designed for language and literacy learning
    Allows composition of novel messages for either spoken or written communication
    Keyboards, core word vocabularies and dictionaries
  • 19. Why Language Use and Language Structure?
    To provide a balance
    Every system should support successful day to day “language use” as well as supporting the “language structure” elements needed for generating novel messages and developing and using language and literacy skills
  • 20. Language Use – quick access to messages
    Common Constructions
    Messages that allow me to interact quickly in a conversation in a particular situation
    Watching TV
    Bedtime
    Quickfires/Generic small talk (Beukelman)
    Messages that allow me to interact quickly in any conversation any time, any place
    Fillers
    Interjections
    Generic Comments
  • 21. Young Child Quickfires
  • 22. Teen Quickfires
  • 23. The InterAACT Framework
    Relies on the understanding and use of the continuum of communication independence
    Segmented by age to include communication across the lifespan.
  • 24. The InterAACT Framework
    3 Broad levels of communicative independence:
    Emergent: (Beginner; partner dependent)
    Contextual: (transitional; context-dependent)
    Independent: (creative; independent)
  • 25. How do these levels affect content presentation
    Emergent:
    Scenes are simple and primary and set the context for interaction
    Few levels to traverse
    Primarily functional utterances
    Facilitator master for partner assisted/partner dependent communication within context
  • 26. How do these levels affect content presentation
    Context Dependent
    Scenes are simple and primary and set the context for interaction
    Greater number of levels to traverse
    Introduction of message building using common constructions
    Increase in the number of utterances presented
    Broader representation of language structure using Gateway
    Facilitator master for partner assisted navigation
  • 27. How do these levels affect content presentation
    Independent
    Scenes play a role for Young Child, Child, and to some extent Teen due to the anticipated literacy levels. All other age ranges are text based.
    Equally reliant on Structure and Use
    Linguistically complex skills based on the norm for the age range
  • 28. Skill Levels within The Continuum
    Changes between these levels take into consideration many different skills:
    Level of awareness
    Communicative intent
    World knowledge
    Memory skills
    Symbolic representation skills
    Metacognitive skills
  • 29. Presentation of Communication Pages
  • 30. Emergent
    Scenes are simple and primary and set the context for interaction
    Few levels to traverse
    Primarily functional utterances
    Facilitator master for partner assisted/partner dependent communication
  • 31. Context Dependent
    Scenes are simple and primary and set the context for interaction
    Greater number of levels to traverse
    Introduction of message building using common constructions
    Increase in the number of utterances presented
    Broader representation of language structure using Gateway
    Facilitator master for partner assisted navigation
  • 32. Independent
    Scenes play a role for Young Child, Child, and to some extent Teen due to the anticipated literacy levels. All other age ranges are text based
    Equally reliant on Structure and Use
    Linguistically complex skills based on the norm for the age range
  • 33. Age Ranges
    For each level of communication independence, the InterAACT system supports “5 life stages”
    Differences in these “stages” determine vocabulary selection, typical range of contexts, and social roles (rituals) represented.
  • 34.
  • 35. Backgrounds
  • 36.
  • 37.
  • 38. New Symbols
  • 39. InterAACT is:
    Interactive and context based
    A unique work based on solid yet diverse pieces of research from a wide variety of fields
    About the joint construction of meaning and sees communication as co-constructed by both partners in the interaction
  • 40. Visual Scene Displays
    Different areas of research
    Young children (2 – 7 years)*
    People with aphasia*
    People with Autism Spectrum Disorder
    VSDs can be used by “groups [who] are unserved or underserved by current AAC technologies” Blackstone, 2006
    *Sponsored by AAC RERC
  • 41. VSDs and young children
    Janice Light and Kathryn Drager
    Series of research studies over a number of years
    Looked at difficulties children with typical development have with existing AAC systems
    Currently investigating VSDs to support the language and communication development in young children with severe communication impairments
  • 42. VSDs in Aphasia
    Beukelman et al have been investigating how VSDs support the social conversations of individuals with severe aphasia
  • 43. VSDs and children with ASD
    Visual scene displays have tremendous potential as a way to improve communication and communication instruction for persons with autism spectrum disorders
    Can be used successfully as aided language displays
    Using visual scenes to provide elaboration about the surroundings, people, and structure of activities gives those on the autism spectrum the greatest amount of support to safely and effectively interact in their environment (Shane, 2006)
  • 44. What InterAACT is NOT!
    A prescription
    Gateway (although Gateway does represent a piece of InterAACT)
    A duplication of anyone’s work
    A lock step program
  • 45. What InterAACT IS!
    Interactive and context based
    A unique work based on solid yet diverse pieces of research from a wide variety of fields
    About the joint construction of meaning and sees communication as co-constructed by both partners in the interaction
    Real people, real words, real situations
  • 46. Let’s go hands-on….
