The members of the focus group on Language and Organization Issues at the January 2005 DAAC Leadership Conference participated in several creative and thought-provoking discussions. It was an honor to serve as facilitator for this group—which included Mary Ann Abbott, Melea Balwan, Scott Bjerke, Cindy Cottier, Russell T. Cross, Liv Stabell Kulo, Karen McNett, Joni Nygard, Maribeth Caya Rivelsrud, Barry Romich, Richard Steele, and Carole Zangari. Our group explored three issues:
  1. What are some of the variables that influence language formulation, storage, and retrieval for adults who use AAC?

  2. What is our current level of knowledge on how people with significant, chronic aphasia use AAC?

  3. Can we develop a clinical framework to clarify assessment and treatment for adults with aphasia?
