Abstract

Many factors affect how much communication aids support and promote children’s participation in everyday settings. However, little research has explored which combinations of environmental, child and communication aid factors appear most influential. This paper will present preliminary findings from a pilot study of outcomes of communication aid provision to children. The main aims were to: (1) develop a self-report questionnaire for the parents and carers; (2) conduct a descriptive analysis of parents’ and carers’ perspectives. It is hoped that this presentation will stimulate discussion on issues such as identifying key influential factors in the take-up and use of communication aids and measuring children’s participation.
