The purpose of this study was to investigate the identification performance on symbols representing 10 verbs between Korean children with intellectual disability and their peers. 10 Korean children with intellectual disability and 10 their peers did the identification task. In this task, the children were presented with four graphic scene symbols at a time, one target symbol and three foils from the testing pool of graphic scene symbols respectively. Graphic scene symbols representing verbs were selected from Ewha-AAC symbols set. This Korean Ewha-AAC Symbols set, specifically developed for individuals with complex communication needs who speak Korean, consist of about 9000 graphic symbols for words, phrases, and sentences. The data will be analyzed using statistics to compare the results from the two groups. The results of the identification performance of Korean children with intellectual disability will be shared during the presentation. In addition, we will discuss about factors affecting children’s graphic symbols use for special educators, speech pathologist, or professionals to choose and use AAC symbols at the early stage in AAC intervention.
