Mobile tablets and smart phones have provided affordable new platforms on which to operate apps that support communication. There are many apps that purport to provide quality Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) - and the list is growing. But which, if any, of these apps provide the depth and quality of language and access that the legacy Speech Generating Devices (SGD) have provided over the previous decades? What tools can we use to determine if a particular app would be appropriate for an individual with complex communication needs? Join us as we explore these and other questions surrounding the use of apps and tablets for AAC and their support for living, learning, working, and playing.
