This paper considers the use of social media for communication by adults with a range of acquired neurological disorders. It briefly reviews the limited research into social media use by this population and discusses both positive and negative aspects.
The author aims to summarise recent research findings on adults with acquired conditions who use AAC and social media, identify gaps and priorities for future research in this area and suggest how the research might be performed. Seven priority areas for research to develop the evidence base in this field are identified and discussed.
