Abstract Because a variety of augmentative communication devices exist, tanging fromhigh technology speech synthesizers to low technology communication boards, members of educational teams are faced with a number of important decisions when attempting to meet the communication needs of persons with severe disabilities. This paper discusses some of the factors that educational teams may need to consider when selecting communication devices for learners with severe disabilities. Consideration of the various components and features of both high and low technology devices may assist parents and professionals in selecting appropriate augmentative communication options for students with severe disabilities.
