The aim of this study is to quantify the effect on communicative abilities of participants* with Angelman syndrome (AS) of high intensity and low intensity training of parents and caretakers in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Parents will be taught how to use the ModelER approach (modelling, encourage and respond/recast) in combination with Communication Passports, Aided Language Displays (ALD’s) and Personal Experience Books (PEB’s). We measure the intervention and training effects in children as well as adults with AS , in order to assist parents and caretakers in choosing an effective AAC-intervention program.
