Alzheimer's Disease

Our research on Alzheimer's Disease addresses the input mode or level of symbol that optimizes AAC device use for persons with moderate dementia. We compare the effectiveness of abstract symbols (printed words), two-dimensional symbols (colored photographs) and three-dimensional symbols (small objects) in AAC devices.
