Abstract

This article describes the timing of AAC in the rehabilitation of individuals with acquired cognitive-linguistic deficits. Core concepts surrounding the timing of remediation and compensatory rehabilitation programs are explored including mutual exclusion, the perception of “giving up,” acceptance, fear of permanency, and the definition of compensation. A hybrid approach to rehabilitation, which encompasses both remediation and compensation, is proposed.
