Abstract

The aim of this article is to review the available literature in the area of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) use amongst individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The inability to speak following TBI may be either temporary or permanent. Either way, it is important that an individual is provided with a series of AAC systems that are appropriate for each stage of his or her recovery. For speech pathologists to be competent in assessing and implementing AAC systems to people with TBI, training and support at an undergraduate level and in the workplace are vital.
