Communicative impairments occur with varying severity in children and adolescents

within the habilitation services. Common in communicative impairments is that they

often restrict the individual’s activity and participation in their daily lives. Engaging in

conversation with someone in one’s surroundings helps create social closeness. The

immediate surroundings are therefore highly important when it comes to ensuring that

individuals with communicative impairments are able to be active participants in their

own lives. The aim of the present study is to investigate, through video-recordings and

surveys, whether the use of the aided communication application “Fotokalendern”

affects the interaction between children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders

and their caregivers and school staff with focus on activity and participation. The results

suggest an increased activity and participation in conversation as an effect of

“Fotokalendern”, but also suggest that factors other than the communication aid might

have affected the outcome. For example, what knowledge of and attitudes about

communication the people in the individual’s surroundings have. Further research is

needed to investigate how these factors can affect the interpersonal interactions where

communication aids are used.
