Acceptance of Augmentative and Alternative Communication Technology by Persons with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (short summary)

Acceptance
 
of
AAC
 
in
ALS

This study aimed to investigate whether there is a pattern to acceptance of high-tech augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices and to investigate the reasons for either acceptance or discontinuance of the use of AAC technology among people who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The researchers found a very high rate of acceptance of AAC technology among the 50 participants. 90% showed immediate acceptance, 6% delayed acceptance and 4% rejection. None of the participants in this study discontinued their use of AAC until very close to the end of their lives.
