Functional communication training using assistive devices: recruiting natural communities of reinforcement. (1/113)

We evaluated the effectiveness of functional communication training (FCT) as an intervention for the problem behavior exhibited by 5 students with severe disabilities both in school and in the community. Following an assessment of the function of their problem behavior, the students were taught to use assistive communication devices in school to request the objects and activities that presumably were maintaining their behavior. Multiple baseline data collected across the students indicated that not only did the students use their devices successfully, but the intervention also reduced their problem behavior. In addition, data from community settings showed generalization to untrained community members. These results replicate other successful efforts to use FCT with individuals having limited communication skills, and demonstrate the value of teaching skills to recruit natural communities of reinforcement in order to generalize intervention effects to meaningful nontraining environments.  (+info)

Empowering the deaf. Let the deaf be deaf. (2/113)

Deafness is often regarded as just a one and only phenomenon. Accordingly, deaf people are pictured as a unified body of people who share a single problem. From a medical point of view, we find it usual to work with a classification of deafness in which pathologies attributable to an inner ear disorder are segregated from pathologies attributable to an outer/middle ear disorder. Medical intervention is thus concerned more with the origin, degree, type of loss, onset, and structural pathology of deafness than with communicative disability and the implications there may be for the patient (mainly dependency, denial of abnormal hearing behaviour, low self esteem, rejection of the prosthetic help, and the breakdown of social relationships). In this paper, we argue that hearing loss is a very complex phenomenon, which has many and serious consequences for people and involves many factors and issues that should be carefully examined. The immediate consequence of deafness is a breakdown in communication whereby the communicative function needs to be either initiated or restored. In that sense, empowering strategies--aimed at promoting not only a more traditional psychological empowerment but also a community one--should primarily focus on the removal of communication barriers.  (+info)

Using the picture exchange communication system (PECS) with children with autism: assessment of PECS acquisition, speech, social-communicative behavior, and problem behavior. (3/113)

The picture exchange communication system (PECS) is an augmentative communication system frequently used with children with autism (Bondy & Frost, 1994; Siegel, 2000; Yamall, 2000). Despite its common clinical use, no well-controlled empirical investigations have been conducted to test the effectiveness of PECS. Using a multiple baseline design, the present study examined the acquisition of PECS with 3 children with autism. In addition, the study examined the effects of PECS training on the emergence of speech in play and academic settings. Ancillary measures of social-communicative behaviors and problem behaviors were recorded. Results indicated that all 3 children met the learning criterion for PECS and showed concomitant increases in verbal speech. Ancillary gains were associated with increases in social-communicative behaviors and decreases in problem behaviors. The results are discussed in terms of the provision of empirical support for PECS as well as the concomitant positive side effects of its use.  (+info)

Predictors of successful self control during brain-computer communication. (4/113)

OBJECTIVES: Direct brain-computer communication uses self regulation of brain potentials to select letters, words, or symbols from a computer menu to re-establish communication in severely paralysed patients. However, not all healthy subjects, or all paralysed patients acquire the skill to self regulate their brain potentials, and predictors of successful learning have not been found yet. Predictors are particularly important, because only successful self regulation will in the end lead to efficient brain-computer communication. This study investigates the question whether initial performance in the self regulation of slow cortical potentials of the brain (SCPs) may be positively correlated to later performance and could thus be used as a predictor. METHODS: Five severely paralysed patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis were trained to produce SCP amplitudes of negative and positive polarity by means of visual feedback and operant conditioning strategies. Performance was measured as percentage of correct SCP amplitude shifts. To determine the relation between initial and later performance in SCP self regulation, Spearman's rank correlations were calculated between maximum and mean performance at the beginning of training (runs 1-30) and mean performance at two later time points (runs 64-93 and 162-191). RESULTS: Spearman's rank correlations revealed a significant relation between maximum and mean performance in runs 1-30 and mean performance in runs 64-93 (r= 0.9 and 1.0) and maximum and mean performance in runs 1-30 and mean performance in runs 162-191 (r=1.0 and 1.0). CONCLUSIONS: Initial performance in the self regulation of SCP is positively correlated with later performance in severely paralysed patients, and thus represents a useful predictor for efficient brain-computer communication.  (+info)

The effects of speech output technology in the learning of graphic symbols. (5/113)

The effects of auditory stimuli in the form of synthetic speech output on the learning of graphic symbols were evaluated. Three adults with severe to profound mental retardation and communication impairments were taught to point to lexigrams when presented with words under two conditions. In the first condition, participants used a voice output communication aid to receive synthetic speech as antecedent and consequent stimuli. In the second condition, with a nonelectronic communications board, participants did not receive synthetic speech. A parallel treatments design was used to evaluate the effects of the synthetic speech output as an added component of the augmentative and alternative communication system. The 3 participants reached criterion when not provided with the auditory stimuli. Although 2 participants also reached criterion when not provided with the auditory stimuli, the addition of auditory stimuli resulted in more efficient learning and a decreased error rate. Maintenance results, however, indicated no differences between conditions. Finding suggest that auditory stimuli in the form of synthetic speech contribute to the efficient acquisition of graphic communication symbols.  (+info)

Everyone here speaks TXT: deaf people using SMS in Australia and the rest of the world. (6/113)

This article examines the extent to which Short Message Service (SMS) messages are breaking down communication barriers among deaf people and between deaf and hearing people. It is predicted that deaf texters will use SMS to increase the bonds between themselves in deaf communities, creating new opportunities to develop relationships, understanding, and intimacy with those not physically present. The most exciting question raised by this article is whether those kinds of relationships, understanding, and intimacy will develop to the same extent with hearing colleagues, friends, and intimates.  (+info)

Patients with disabilities and complex communication needs. The GP consultation. (7/113)

BACKGROUND: People with complex communication needs vary in terms of their underlying disability and the methods and strategies they use to communicate. OBJECTIVE: This article describes the varied communication profiles that a general practitioner is likely to encounter in patients with disabilities, and the various types of augmentative and alternative forms of communication that might be used in such consultations. DISCUSSION: This article provides strategies to facilitate doctor-patient communication involving patients with complex communication needs, some of which are illustrated in a case study of a young woman with an intellectual disability.  (+info)

Test-retest reliability of fMRI during nonverbal semantic decisions in moderate-severe nonfluent aphasia patients. (8/113)

Cortical reorganization in poststroke aphasia is not well understood. Few studies have investigated neural mechanisms underlying language recovery in severe aphasia patients, who are typically viewed as having a poor prognosis for language recovery. Although test-retest reliability is routinely demonstrated during collection of language data in single-subject aphasia research, this is rarely examined in fMRI studies investigating the underlying neural mechanisms in aphasia recovery. The purpose of this study was to acquire fMRI test-retest data examining semantic decisions both within and between two aphasia patients. Functional MRI was utilized to image individuals with chronic, moderate-severe nonfluent aphasia during nonverbal, yes/no button-box semantic judgments of iconic sentences presented in the Computer-assisted Visual Communication (C-ViC) program. We investigated the critical issue of intra-subject reliability by exploring similarities and differences in regions of activation during participants' performance of identical tasks twice on the same day. Each participant demonstrated high intra-subject reliability, with response decrements typical of task familiarity. Differences between participants included greater left hemisphere perilesional activation in the individual with better response to C-ViC training. This study provides fMRI reliability in chronic nonfluent aphasia, and adds to evidence supporting differences in individual cortical reorganization in aphasia recovery.  (+info)

In this edition of reSearch we explore the use of augmentative and alternative communication with individuals with autism spectrum disorders. Augmentative and alternative communication (herein referred to as AAC) ... includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas (Retrieved January 21, 2010 from www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/AAC). This is especially important for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (herein referred to as ASD). According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) AAC is used to as a supplement to existing speech or to replace speech that is not functional. There are two types of communication systems: unaided and aided. Unaided communication systems rely on the users body to convey messages through gestures, body language, and/or sign language. Aided communication systems involve the use of equipment in addition to the users body. Examples include: pen and paper, ...
Mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) experience profound communication impairment, placing them at risk for poor physical and psychological outcomes. Patient communication strategies such as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and voice restorative devices are recommended to facilitate communication. These strategies, however, are inconsistently adopted in ICU practice signaling utilization barriers. Our objective is to map and synthesize the current evidence-base for stakeholder-reported barriers and facilitators to patient communication strategy utilization for adults with an advanced airway in the ICU. We will use Arskey and OMalleys recommended methods to conduct a scoping review using a rapid review framework to streamline the process. A single reviewer will conduct a search and an initial screen of titles and abstracts from five electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature [CINAHL],
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is an umbrella term that encompasses the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. AAC is used by those with a wide range of speech and language impairments, including congenital impairments such as cerebral palsy, intellectual impairment and autism, and acquired conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Parkinsons disease. AAC can be a permanent addition to a persons communication or a temporary aid. Modern use of AAC began in the 1950s with systems for those who had lost the ability to speak following surgical procedures. During the 1960s and 1970s, spurred by an increasing commitment in the West towards the inclusion of disabled individuals in mainstream society and developing the skills required for independence, the use of manual sign language and then graphic symbol communication grew greatly. It was not until ...

This study examined the effectiveness of an instructional program designed to teach grammar skills to individuals who communicated via augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). A single-subject, multiple probe across behaviors design was used to measure the effect of the instructional program on the acquisition and maintenance of the skills learned. Two adults with cerebral palsy participated in the study. The instructional program was used to teach 2 grammatical forms to each participant. Word order in adjective phrases and inversion of the auxiliary do in wh- questions was targeted for 1 participant; use of possessive pronouns and inclusion of to when using infinitives as modal verbs was targeted for the second participant. The instructional program was shown to be effective. Both participants learned to produce the grammatical forms taught. One participant maintained these skills for at least 2 months after the completion of instruction; the other participant required additional ...

The aim of this study was to conduct a preliminary analysis of relations between child and environmental variables, including factors related to communication aid provision, and participation in informal everyday activities in a sample of children with complex communication needs. Ninety-seven caregivers of children provided with communication aids responded to a questionnaire survey. Child variables assessed were level of ability, trait emotional self-efficacy, and competence in communication aid use. Environmental variables assessed were the impact of childhood disability on the family, family socio-economic category, perceived reliability of electronic communication aids provided to children, and ease of use of the aid. The outcome measure was the intensity of child participation in informal activities. Significant correlations were observed between participation scores and the following variables: child age, level of ability, trait emotional self-efficacy, and family impact of childhood disability.

Individuals who have lost normal pathways for communication need augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices. In this study, we propose a new electrooculogram (EOG)-based human-computer interface (HCI) paradigm for AAC that does not require a users voluntary eye movement for binary yes/no communication by patients in locked-in state (LIS). The proposed HCI uses a horizontal EOG elicited by involuntary auditory oculogyric reflex, in response to a rotating sound source. In the proposed HCI paradigm, a user was asked to selectively attend to one of two sound sources rotating in directions opposite to each other, based on the users intention. The users intentions could then be recognised by quantifying EOGs. To validate its performance, a series of experiments was conducted with ten healthy subjects, and two patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The online experimental results exhibited high-classification accuracies of 94% in both healthy subjects and ALS patients in cases
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is an important clinical intervention for many people with motor neurone disease (MND).. This information is for health and social care professionals working with people with MND. It provides suggestions for best practice in AAC provision, and where to find more information.. There is a wide variety of AAC devices and software available, with new products and applications being developed all the time. Because people with MND are unique, it is important to start with their communication needs and wishes first, before considering which AAC system will be most helpful.. A trial of a device before purchase is highly recommended. This can help to establish how effective it is for a person, and can provide evidence for funding. Many suppliers will offer trials of equipment, sometimes for a small fee. ...

Six-year old Danielle Brown was born without the ability to form sounds to make words. She needed a special device called an augmentative and alternative communication device (AAC) that uses symbols, pictures, and a keyboard to help her communicate, but Medicaid had refused to pay.. The Center sued the agency, arguing that the AAC device was just as necessary to people with severe speech disorders as hearing aids are to people with hearing loss. Given that Medicaid already paid for hearing aids and other medically necessary equipment, failure to pay for the ACC devices violated the Medicaid Act and federal laws designed to protect disabled Americans from discrimination.. The suit was filed in June 1998 with help from the Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program and the Assistive Technology Law Project. It was settled soon after and Medicaid began paying for the device for Danielle and other children and adults with severe speech disorders. One expert estimated that at least 35 Alabamians a year ...

The present study was designed to determine whether significant differences existed in typical adults in the preferences across two symbol sets (Boardmaker® or Overboard®) frequently displayed on the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. Three research questions were addressed. Is one symbol set more preferable than the other for typical adults? Is one symbol set preferred over the other by age groups? What qualitative data can be found to validate symbol preferences? A total of 56 participants participated in the study. Three tasks were involved in the study. The results indicated that regardless of the category (i.e., nouns, verbs, descriptors), the Boardmaker® symbol set is most preferred among the most typical participants except the age of 51-60, but did not reach the significant difference statistically ...
Typical disorders SLPs treat are voice, speech and language, swallowing, cognition (memory, attention), fluency (stuttering), autism and intellectual disabilities. An average evaluation includes background questions, a formal assessment and education and can take a couple visits a week totaling six to eight visits per month, depending on the diagnosis and severity of illness. They also offer augmentative or alternative communication techniques for nonverbal patients and stroke recovery patients.. SLPs use specialized equipment including neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and a sound level meter. NMES is utilized for dysphagia (trouble swallowing) and stroke patients with facial drooping to target facial muscle groups. It feels like a tingling sensation and takes a while to get used to it, but it doesnt hurt. Positive outcomes of using neuromuscular electrical stimulation may be improved swallow function and improved facial symmetry. They also use a sound level meter to measure loudness ...
When Division 10 and Division 12, Augmentative and Alternative Communication decided to develop a joint newsletter issue, we both wondered, What is the connection between these two constituency groups? What became apparent to both of us was that all training programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders are facing the challenge of meeting the new ASHA standards and developing course content and clinical experiences that provide students the knowledge and skills across the Big 9 content areas. In addition to this challenge, CSD programs are in the process of developing and implementing the Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) form for tracking students learning outcomes across all Big 9 areas. As we planned and developed this joint issue, with the guidance and input of faculty with expertise in AAC throughout the U.S., the connections between our Special Interest Divisions became clear. Faculty members in CSD programs need resources, information, and options to implement AAC training. ...

At NCIE, I saw a lot about AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication.) Im on a Neurodiversity Committee at my college. One of the things I told my committee (It really is mine: Im not officially in charge, but no one really argues with me. They sometimes are a bit OK, how do we do that? but thats about as much as I get) was that its not just autistic people who are specifically Aspergers going to college. Its not just people who get called high functioning going to college. (Functioning labels are made of fail anyways. Getting into specific support needs, though, is super-useful because it lets people get what help they need.) There are going to be nonspeaking Autistic people with significant support needs wanting to go to typical 4-year programs and access the general curriculum. Its estimated that 20 or fewer nonspeaking autistic people have earned college degrees to date (but thats not zero!) and there will be more.

Speech therapy is an intervention service that focuses on improving a childs speech and abilities to understand and express language, including nonverbal language. Speech therapists, or speech and language pathologists (SLPs), are the professionals who provide these services. Speech therapy includes two components: 1) coordinating the mouth to produce sounds to form words and sentences (to address articulation, fluency, and voice volume regulation); and 2) understanding and expressing language (to address the use of language through written, pictorial, body, and sign forms, and the use of language through alternative communication systems such as social media, computers, and iPads). In addition, the role of SLPs in treating swallowing disorders has broadened to include all aspects of feeding.. Read more on Parents.com ,,. ...
This paper describes how a deaf to hearing communication aid built for a mobile phone can be used to provide semi-synchronous communication between a Deaf person and a hearing person who cannot sign. Deaf people with access to mobile phones have become accustomed to using Short Messaging Services, to communicate with both hearing and Deaf people. However Most Deaf people have basic literacy levels and hence prefer not to communicate with text, but with South Africa Sign Language. The prototype uses interpreted communication between sign language and English. The mock-up is meant to help a Deaf person convey their medical conditions to a doctor face-to-face in the office. The prototype is made using prerecorded sign language videos for the Deaf person and English text for the hearing doctor. The interaction on the mobile phone is done inside the phones browser using video streaming, instead of playing the video in a third-party media player. The design goal was to present the system on a mobile ...

Hospital visits and procedures can be distressing for children and their families and an inability to communicate feelings about this or to understand what is happening can increase stress.. Hospital staff often rely on parents of children with communication difficulties to act as interpreters and have little knowledge of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and communication disabilities.. This paper looks into some of the ways in which the effects of using AAC interventions in health care can be measured.. The authors used two measures of anxiety and stress to investigate the effects of introducing AAC strategies into a childrens day surgery unit. Staff were trained to use pictorial supports to explain what was going to happen to children and to allow them to ask questions about the procedure. Measurement of salivary cortisol levels was use to assess stress, an adapted anxiety scale was used and childrens need for premedication due to anxiety or tension was considered in ...

The acceptability and feasibility of a home-based gestural training program for nine children with Angelman syndrome (AS), deletion positive, and their parents were examined. Children with AS have been found to exhibit a variety of challenges, including severe communication disabilities for which different Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems have been of limited use (Alvares & Downing, 1998). Parents in this study were taught to recognize and then enhance their childrens use of natural gestures as enhanced natural gestures (ENGs). ENGs are intentional behaviors that are present in a childs motor repertoire or can be easily taught based on a childs extant motor skills. Unlike contact gestures, such as grabbing objects from partners or pulling partners toward preferred activities, ENGs do not require physical contact with entities or interactants and are readily understood by others in context. Parents were taught to use four primary teaching techniques: environmental sabotage,
The aim of this study is to quantify the effect on communicative abilities of participants* with Angelman syndrome (AS) of high intensity and low intensity training of parents and caretakers in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Parents will be taught how to use the ModelER approach (modelling, encourage and respond/recast) in combination with Communication Passports, Aided Language Displays (ALDs) and Personal Experience Books (PEBs). We measure the intervention and training effects in children as well as adults with AS , in order to assist parents and caretakers in choosing an effective AAC-intervention program.. ...

A brain-computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a neural-control interface (NCI), mind-machine interface (MMI), direct neural interface (DNI), or brain-machine interface (BMI), is a direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device. BCI differs from neuromodulation in that it allows for bidirectional information flow. BCIs are often directed at researching, mapping, assisting, augmenting, or repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor functions. Research on BCIs began in the 1970s at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under a grant from the National Science Foundation, followed by a contract from DARPA. The papers published after this research also mark the first appearance of the expression brain-computer interface in scientific literature. The field of BCI research and development has since focused primarily on neuroprosthetics applications that aim at restoring damaged hearing, sight and movement. Thanks to the remarkable cortical ...
At a time when wheelchairs are reinvented to encompass the needs of the user, Project Saksham, focussed on wheelchair usage, has imparted ability to the physically challenged.. There comes a gap between the time when a person discards his high school physics books and discovers the beauty that Richard Feynmans Physics Lecture series is. It is during this period that students stumble upon the bestsellers and end up on the futile quest of understanding The Brief History of Time by Prof. Stephen Hawking or, for that matter, any of his publications, in their entirety. Thankfully, I had the much required discorso mentale and my train of thought shifted its course from What he does? to How he does it?. His communication system has always fascinated me. It is astonishing how a person can communicate just with the movement of a single muscle group on his cheek. Soon enough, I was more interested in developing an alternate system and that gave birth to the project SAKSHAM, the word Saksham ...

Objective: Brain stimulation has the potential to become a valuable intervention for patients with severe upper-limb paresis following brain injury, surgery or stroke. Neuromodulation has been shown to be most effective in inducing plasticity when applied in conjunction with repetitive motor practice. Novel Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) based training environments are a promising solution to facilitate motor restoration substituting the disturbed efferent channel of the human motor system and enabling brain-state dependent application of brain stimulation.. Method: We introduced a training set-up that consists of both gravity-compensating and robot-controlled devices for the upper extremity of patients with severe arm and hand paresis. Embedded in closed-loop brain-computer interface (BCI) technology this set-up allowed patients to volitionally control an orthosis attached to their paretic extremity by the modulation of brain oscillations. The significant increase of BCI control was paralleled ...

Invasive brain-computer interfaces aim to improve the quality of life of severely paralyzed patients. Movement intentions are read out in the brain, and this information is used to control robotic limbs. A research team at the Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum Langendreer, University Clinic of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, has examined which errors can occur during communication between the brain and the robotic prosthesis and which of them are particularly significant. With the aid of a virtual reality model, the researchers found that a faulty alignment of the prosthesis, the so-called end effector, results in a measurable loss of performance. The Bochum-based researchers headed by Dr. Christian Klaes from the Department of Neurosurgery published the results in the journal Scientific Reports.. Three main sources of error. Brain-computer interfaces can enable severely paralyzed patients to move a prosthesis. In the invasive method, a measuring device implanted in the brain translates the signals from ...

The other notable market observation is how closely the iPhone follows the same pattern as the market. The red line representing the iPhone above is almost perfectly parallel to the green and blue lines which represent the overall market. The reason for this seems to be that consumers are absorbing the product in similar way to how they are absorbing the technology.1 The learning model which underpins logistic models could offer clues as to the cause. It suggests that there is a direct communication that happens between the product and the consumer.. Incidentally, the reason other platforms do not follow this pattern is that they are not communicating value with the consumer but with manufacturers or distributors of the product. These alternative communications could create faster or slower growth than the overall market as they are not subject to the same large population imitation/learning models.. If we believe that the iPhone can be modeled behaviorally then it may be possible to forecast ...
Not even Stephen Hawking uses the kind of sci-fi communication interface that University of Kansas neuroscientist Jonathan Brumberg is developing. Hawking uses a cheek muscle to control his voice device. But Brumberg wants to give individuals with no voluntary movement at all the ability to control a communication device via a brain-computer (BCI) interface-with their thoughts alone. And what would set this apart from other speech BCIs is that it would allow an individual to speak through a speech synthesizer in real time.. BCIs are increasingly being used in scientific research and therapeutic interventions for individuals with ALS, like Hawking, as well as for those with locked-in syndrome due to brain stem stroke or other conditions, said Brumberg, assistant professor of speech-language-hearing.. Brumberg is testing a prototype BCI that can decode an individuals brain waves recorded via a non-invasive 60-channel electroencephalography cap into sound frequencies for control of a vowel ...

Predicting a subjects ability to use a Brain Computer Interface (BCI) is one of the major issues in the BCI domain. Relevant applications of forecasting BCI performance include the ability to adapt the BCI to the needs and expectations of the user, assessing the efficiency of BCI use in stroke rehabilitation, and finally, homogenizing a research population. A limited number of recent studies have proposed the use of subjective questionnaires, such as the Motor Imagery Questionnaire Revised-Second Edition (MIQ-RS). However, further research is necessary to confirm the effectiveness of this type of subjective questionnaire as a BCI performance estimation tool. In this study we aim to answer the following questions: can the MIQ-RS be used to estimate the performance of an MI-based BCI? If not, can we identify different markers that could be used as performance estimators? To answer these questions, we recorded EEG signals from 35 healthy volunteers during BCI use. The subjects had previously completed the

This paper provides an overview of the literature investigating the functional relationship between the use of the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and maladaptive behavior (i.e., aggression, tantrums) in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Digital searches were conducted to identify single subject design studies published between 1994 and 2012. While nine studies were identified, only three explicitly addressed the collateral effects of PECS training on reduction of maladaptive behavior. Of the seven participants across these three studies, four demonstrated an inverse relationship between PECS exchange and reduction of maladaptive behavior. Results are promising in terms of functional communication. However, the authors suggest caution due to limited number of publications to date. ...

Earlier this year, the Disability Law Center in Salt Lake City received a favorable decision in Conley v. Utah Department of Health. According to Adina Zahradnikova, executive director of the center, the Division of Medicaid and Health Financing will not appeal the decision which will allow a large group of Utahns with disabilities to access speech augmentative communication devices (SACDs), thereby improving their functional independence and quality of life.. The Utah Court of Appeals ruled that the Department of Healths Division of Medicaid and Health Financings categorical denial of SACDs to individuals over the age of 22 is a violation of the comparability of services provision of federal Medicaid law.. Plaintiff Nicholas Conley has cerebral palsy. While in school, the district provided him with a SACD. After leaving the school system at age 22, he lost access to the device. Now he is unable to communicate his most basic wants and needs orally, nor can he any longer communicate ...

3 Benefits include... Cost savings. The allowances in VCUs proposed policy are more favorable compared to mandatory state contracts which include the VITA mark-up. - For example, if the 398 Blackberry users were switched to the allowance, even if it was assumed that every one of them qualified for heavy data and heavy voice use, the monthly cost to VCU would still go down $8.25/device/month, for a savings of $39,402 annually. Flexibility. Employees will be able to make their own choices relative to their wireless communication needs and, for employees who typically have been carrying two devices - one for personal and one for business - this change allows them to eliminate one of the devices. Reduced risk. The universitys [audit] compliance risk increases when university devices are used in violation of the universitys Cell Phone policy, which expressly prohibits personal use.
