The goal of our research was to determine whether using Augmentative and Alternative Communication technology improves conversation in everyday settings for individuals with primary progressive aphasia. We have developed several applications that are accessed through personal tablets at home.

We are no longer conducting research into PPA. Active research is underway by Dr. Allison Lindauer and Aimee Mooney.
