Open-design and Co-Creation of AAC Pictographic Symbols

Open-design and co-creation of AAC pictographic symbols is rarely written about in research journals. Adding and adapting symbols to open licensed symbol sets requires care and understanding of the needs of potential users, plus changes that occur in society or settings over time, as well as an appreciation of any limitations due to a previously developed design style and schema.

Supporting Ukrainian refugees with AAC symbols and charts

Over the last month many Ukranians have had to leave their country. We have been trying to see how we can help. As a start we have gathered together some links to resources that might help with communication needs across several countries supporting refugees as well as links to those with donation buttons and free translated communication boards.
