Learning to use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technology is complex.
Thinking About Thinking for AAC (TAT4AAC) is an interactive online resource summarizing literature from the fields of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and cognition.
Thinking About Thinking for AAC (TAT4AAC) has been developed to provide references about the cognitive demands of specific features of AAC technologies to allow clinicians to consider and compare the cognitive demands presented by AAC technologies to support clinical decision-making.
There are two parts: an online interactive library and a resulting annotated bibliography. Upon completion of the interactive library, a printable PDF is then generated that lists pertinent references and summaries related to the selected AAC features and their cognitive demands.
