Our mission - making Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) an effective and accepted means of communication would be impossible to achieve without families, professionals and schools having access to AAC.
AssistiveWare has released a Proloquo4Text Mac app, as well as adding some exciting new features to Proloquo4Text for iPad, and iPhone. Now you can finally also have Proloquo4Text on your desktop, in your hands, in your pocket, and on your wrist.
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.
Elina’s AAC journey is really special to us, since we’ve in some ways grown up together. We first featured her in a video when she was just 10 years old, and was already starting to master the Mac app Proloquo. More than a decade later, she’s got a lot going on. We caught up with her over email to ask about her education, what AAC means to her and what’s on the horizon.
