Research projects at the University of Nebraska and Pennsylvania State University are addressing the appeal of AAC technology features for individuals with disabilities and their primary communication partners. Researchers at the University of Nebraska have conducted five studies to learn more about the attitudes of adults with acquired disabilities and their communication partners regarding AAC technology features. At Pennsylvania State, researchers used unique approaches to investigate features young children would find appealing in AAC technologies.
Purpose: The project investigated the attitudes and preferences of adults with acquired disabilities and their communication partners towards features of AAC technologies.
Target populations: Persons with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aphasia, traumatic brain injury with severe communication disorders and their communication partners (family members, peers, service providers).
