A diverse group of individuals with acquired neurogenic disorders and severe dysarthria may benefit from augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). These include persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, and those with degenerative neurological diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’s disease (HD) and multiple sclerosis (MS; Doyle, Kennedy, Jausalaitis, & Phillips, 2000; Klasner & Yorkston, 2000; Mathy, Yorkston, & Gutmann, 2000; Yorkston, 1996). The etiology, incidence, and characteristics of these disorders are described elsewhere (e.g., Doyle et al., 2000; Klasner & Yorkston, 2000; Mathy, Yorkston, & Gutmann, 2000; Yorkston, Miller, & Strand, 1995).
