Colleagues, we are hoping that you will agree to take a very short survey regarding augmentative and alternative communication and therapy in aphasia. The aim of the survey is to find out more about how speech-language pathologists describe and use AAC in aphasia therapy. We have purposely not included our own definition of AAC because we want to hear your ideas first. If you are willing to help with the survey, please click on the link above or paste the link into your browser to go to the web-based survey. After completing the survey, you may choose to enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card.
