Last year, we launched a new section of our website called Learn AAC. Our next project was to better support AAC users themselves. Here we share the insights we got from AAC users on their experiences.
Autism Acceptance Month challenges us to examine how we teach autonomy and privacy to people learning to use AAC. Alyssa Hillary is an Autistic graduate student in neuroscience, where they do AAC-related research. Their perspective on privacy and autonomy was so powerful that it needed its own blog, which they tell about in their own words here.
