5 AAC and Related Assessment Forms

Ask any 10 professionals how they do AAC evaluations and you’re likely to get 10 different answers. We look for the same things (I think!)  but go about it in different ways. We’re always happy to take a look at the protocols and forms that our colleagues develop and/or use. Here are some that might be of interest.

1. Bloom and Lahey Recording Sheet for staging language by Sherri Vernelso and Emily Pratt5 AAC and Related Assessment Forms

2. Kate Ahern’s form for AAC device trials

3. SETT process assessment forms by HILIA Coordinators of Assistive Technology Services

4. The Functional Behavior Assessment Worksheet and Observation Forms by PaTTAN

5. Assessing the metaphoric use of pictures (e.g., Minspeak, Unity) protocol and forms by Gail Van Tatenhove

If you have a protocol or form that you’d like to share, please get in touch. We’re always looking for new and better tools.
