Planning is now underway for the 2019 Doctoral Student AAC Research Think Tank (May 19-21, 2019).
Recent advances in the field of augmented reality present a new opportunity for AAC systems that are more contextually integrated, relevant and cognitively salient.
NARIC highlighted the recent RERC on AAC publication on “soliciting user feedback from persons with severe speech and physical impairments” in their Research in Focus newsletter.
RERC on AAC partners David Beukelman, Melanie Fried-Oken, and Janice Light presented in Toronto, Canada, for ISAAC 2016, August 8 – 11, 2016.
The purposes of this workshop are to engage the rehabilitation engineering community to further describe the challenges and opportunities that currently exist for BCI-AAC synergy.
Our goals were to share the experience of the RERC on AAC at each stage of development, and to share the story of one R & D project
A Research and Development Award (up to a total of $3,000) is available to the first place student project.
Engineering students from Penn State University and the Belgium Campus – South Africa are the winning team in the 2016 Student Research and Design Competition.
Please join us at RESNA 2016, July 10 -14 in Arlington, VA.
Update: July 25, 2016. So that we may focus on summarizing and sharing the information we have received to date, we are no longer accepting new participants in this project.
