The goal of the research is to improve augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) displays and other visual materials that are used to support the communication of individuals with ID.
Our deep thanks to Dr. Mirenda for her insights: it has been a wonderful and inspiring visit!
A wide range of learning opportunities are encouraged to prepare high quality doctoral students in AAC as researchers/ university faculty.
Huge congratulations to Janice in recognition of her incredible dedication to improve the lives of individuals who have complex communication needs and their families!
Doctoral students at PSU have a variety of opportunities to develop competencies in research methods, personnel preparation, policy and professional issues in SLP, research and evidence-based practices for high need children who require AAC, leadership, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
“We’ve not yet even begun to scratch the surface of the infinite possibilities that AAC has to offer.” — Godfrey Nazareth
