Abstract

Text messaging is becoming an increasing popular social networking strategy. More than 80% of American adults have cell phones, three-quarters of them send and receive text messages. People who rely on AAC are also finding texting an efficient, asynchronous way to communicate. In this report, Michael Williams discusses his use of texting. We also introduce core vocabulary resources for AAC texting.
