There are five goals for the AAC Incubator:
- to determine key technology barriers for individuals who require AAC and respond quickly to develop technology solutions to meet these needs;
- to provide experience in consumer-led research and dissemination activities for people who use AAC;
- to provide training in collaborative R & D in AAC for engineering students through capstone experiences;
- to increase awareness of AAC among mainstream technology manufacturers to
- support universal design; and
- to develop new prototypes to address the unmet needs of individuals with CCN.
February 2019 update: To date, over 103 engineering students have participated in AAC Incubator activities.
