Our research focuses on augmentative and alternative communication technology use by persons with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease). We recently conducted a survey on the communication methods used by people with ALS, how people with ALS learn about their options for communication, and how people with ALS participate in various communication situations. Check the Publications section below to learn more about this work. We are currently planning a new project related to communicative participation for people with ALS.

Our research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

 Here you will find short descriptions of the grants we have worked on regarding Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Writing papers about our work is an important part of the research process. The papers you will find here have been included in conference proceedings and peer-reviewed journals.

Every year we give presentations about the work we are doing. We have a diverse team who present on different aspects of the study.

Here you will find articles and other writings from community members with ALS who are participating in our research. You will also find newsletters featuring our research.
