This article is based on our presentation at the 2007 ASHA DAAC Conference. Our role was to serve as respondents from within the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) to the talk given by Dr. Gillian King. Dr. King laid out, in a broad sense, some of the complexities practitioners in the field of AAC confront on a daily basis. Her remarks echo some of the concepts that scholars within the AAC community have been discussing for some time.
Though it is clear that AAC practitioners have not yet truly integrated families into our thinking about evidence-based practice, we wish to use this opportunity to consider some aspects of Dr. King's message (i.e., what we know and where we can expand our attention and focus).
