This translational research study examines data collected from 179 interdisciplinary AAC evaluations for children with disabilities during a single calendar year. The study examines the complex needs of children who receive AAC evaluations and identifies OT’s distinct role in accommodating motor and sensory limitations that inhibit a child’s ability to access a device. Results indicate that children benefit from interdisciplinary AAC evaluations and describe device features OT’s can recommend.
