Interest in grammatical development among children needing AAC has grown in recent years, but it typically has not been a primary intervention focus. In this article I review some of the issues related to grammatical development in children needing AAC. The focus is on the development of underlying grammatical knowledge (for spoken language comprehension and AAC production). It must be emphasized at the outset that many other important aspects of grammatical development and AAC are left for future consideration. For example, whether different AAC systems support grammatical development through the production options they offer (e. g., programmed grammatical morphemes, Blissymbol markers, iconic sequences, etc.) is one of the important unresolved issues.
