Assistive Technology/Augmentative & Alternative Communication Implementation: School to Home during COVID-19
This explanatory sequential mixed-methods study sought to describe the implementation process of AT/AAC from school to home during the COVID-19 pandemic, including the extent to which AT/AAC was used, how AT/AAC was used, and what, if any, support the school systems provided. A researcher-designed survey was completed by 104 special educators and 45 parents. Seventeen follow-up interviews were conducted with educators and parent participants. Results of the study demonstrated the importance of clear communication, explicit expectations and procedures for AT/AAC use, and collaboration among stakeholders if AT/AAC implementation is to be as effective as possible.
