Implementering av AKK för barn och ungdomar som har flerfunktionsnedsättning - en studie av habiliteringslogopeders erfarenhet
Sammanfattning: This study aimed to investigate speech and language pathologist’s (SLPs) experiences when implementing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) with children and adolescents with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities. Five SLPs participated in individual, semi-structured interviews. A thematic analysis was conducted which resulted in three main themes: SLPs expertise, Collaboration in the network and Conditions for implementation. The results show that SLPs apply multimodal alternatives methods for communication and the importance of setting small goals. It also appeared that time, lack of knowledge about communication in the network and the child's health status are obstacles during implementation of AAC. The time aspect relates to the organizational resource of the SLPs and the parents' ability to set aside time. Time from a child's perspective is related to slow development, other health contacts and medical factors that influence implementation. The result of the study indicate that intervention need to have a long-term perspective.
