Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Lab
In the AAC lab, the department maintains a range of alternative/augmentative communication tools, including low-tech tools for emerging communicators, dedicated full-featured AAC devices and iPads loaded with several dozen AAC and intervention applications, as well as Boardmaker software used to create no-tech communication boards. The technologies are available to students and faculty for use in research studies (for a list of ongoing projects, click here), hands-on learning in the required graduate course on alternative/augmentative communication, and in the Norma S. and Ray R. Rees Speech, Language and Hearing clinic. For a full list of available AAC-related software and hardware, go here.
