Research Questions


The I-ASC study investigates four key research questions to meet the aims and objectives of the project:

  1. What attributes related to the child, and generic communication aids, do clinicians consider important in making decisions about communication aid provision?
  2. What other factors influence or inform the final decision?
  3. What attributes are considered important by other participants (e.g. the child and their family) and how do these impact in the short, medium and long term?
  4. What decision support guidance and resources would enhance the quality, accountability and comparability of decision making?
