Abstract This paper will illustrate how research on the typical course of early conceptual and lexical development can be relevent in planning AAC interventions. Four clinical challenges facing the clinician who is introducing a child to an AAC system using graphic symbols will be discussed: selecting a symbol system, selecting an initial vocabulary, organizing vocabulary displays, and using vocabulary encoding strategies. The clinical challenge will be described, selected literature from developmental psychology and psycholinguistics will be reviewed and possible clinical implications related to the clinical challenge will be discussed.

Cet article illustrera comment la recherche sur le déroulement caractéristique du début du développement conceptuel et lexical peut être pertinente à la planification des interventions en matière de CS. Une discussion portera sur les quatre défis à relever par le clinicien qui initie un enfant à un système de CS faisant appel à des symboles graphiques : choix d'un système de symboles, choix d'un vocabulaire initial, organisation de la représentation du vocabulaire et utilisation de stratégies de codage du vocabulaire. La description du défi clinique sera sui vie d'un examen de la documentation sommaire en psychologie et en psycholinguistique du développement et d'une discussion sur les répercussions éventuellement liées au défi clinique.
