Each week they work together to design and personalize novel AAC interfaces for persons with severe aphasia. Jamie is a graduate speech-language pathology student and Carl is an older man who is a stroke survivor. Together, they assist persons with aphasia to select photos that will illustrate their lives, interests, and experiences. Jamie enters personalized and generic scenes and images into a new AAC interface that manages digital images. She teaches participants with aphasia to understand the operation of their new personalized interfaces. Carl is the first interactant (listener) to communicate with each participant with aphasia. Together, they are refining the content of the interface. In 2002, they are unusual research partners, but the story began many years ago.
