The incidence of disabilities that affect communication in children is on the rise. Disabilities that affect communication often cause other developmental challenges that hinder a child’s ability to develop literacy skills. This exploratory study examines the literacy skills of 179 children who received an interdisciplinary AAC evaluation. Study results describe OT’s role in providing literacy supports to professionals who work with children that use an AAC device.
