Special Issue on AAC State of the Science – Update

Cover of AAC journal

 

The five papers from the RERC on AAC State of the Science Conference have received over 25,000 downloads since they were published in a special issue of the AAC journal in March, 2019. The papers were based on the presentations at the State of the Science conference, as well as input from the participants: people who use AAC, family members, researchers, developers, manufacturers, and clinicians.

All five are available as free downloads at the links below.

We also were pleased to be joined at the State of the Science by a number of individuals who use AAC and family members. The presentations by these invited speakers are now available as webcasts, and are posted at  aac-learning-center.psu.edu
