Mission and Approach


The REKNEW Projects have two major goals: to develop practical methods to support elders with degenerative neurological disease to communicate successfully; and to collect scientific evidence of the effectiveness of those methods.


Our translational research is based on previous studies of ways to help children and adults with congenital and acquired disorders to communicate. We conduct our studies in the homes of our participants with their families and caregivers. We include study participants in the planning and conduct of our research studies.
