The role of the Internet in teaching Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) has changed dramatically in the past few years. There was a time when the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW) were thought only to be “distance learning” resources, providing a way to reach students who were not in the same location as the instructor (Dowden & Amtmann, 1996). However, we have come to see that these resources can enhance all AAC instruction, whether it takes place within or beyond the traditional classroom. This is particularly true because the Internet encourages “resource sharing,” enabling individual instructors to enhance courses with materials developed elsewhere in the world. These Internet resources are valuable to AAC educators for all levels of learners, including in-service as well as pre-service instruction.
