Tech Watch Mission & Policy Statement

TechWatch is sponsored by the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Communication Enhancement (AAC-RERC) which is funded by a grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR)*.

The purpose of the Tech Watch blog is to disseminate information regarding new technology research and devices relevant to the AAC community. The major focus will be on providing news on  new technology development and research tools. This blog will be used to disseminate AAC technology-related news related to this and other RERCs.  We will also publish news about events in the AAC industry, like new technology releases. Please note that any publication of AAC industry related news will be based on its newsworthyness, as determined by the blogger. No preference will be given to any manufacturer. New item suggestions may be sent to Jeff Higginbotham at ubceac@gmail.com.

* The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Communication Enhancement (AAC-RERC) is funded under grant #H133E080011 from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) in the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS).
