Abstract

This article describes an integrated augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and literacy intervention program developed for five adults with autism in a supported employment facility. Specific assessment and intervention strategies as well as general outcomes of the program are discussed. Three detailed case studies describe approaches used with project participants who had emerging, beginning, and more advanced levels of communication and literacy skill.
